E-planning on its way
The government is on course to have all applications capable of being made and viewed online by the end of 2005. 'Parsol' is the favoured mechanism and it has been launched to local planning authorities as the means of getting their act together. Mainly aimed at providing the necessary software and data set-up, it will be promoted to applicants once it is in place. Largely based on the advanced work of the London Borough of Wandsworth, it should be 'rolled-out' next year.
