|Online Move for Planning Applications|
22 August 2003
The London Borough of Barking and Dagenham has introduced an online planning applications service in a major new project developed by the Council's Web Design Team and Planning Services.
Visitors to the Council's website can now locate and view details of planning applications in their area by simply entering the name of a road in the Borough.
"This is a great advancement for the Council and is only the beginning", commented Councillor Liam Smith, Executive Member for eGovernment. "Allowing residents to view planning applications online is a first step to developing and improving electronic access to planning information.
"Planning applications are available at the touch of a button, but we want to be able to offer them more. We will be working hard to develop this system so that all communication around planning applications is a lot quicker and easier for our residents."
