The digital democracy and modernization of the planning process is a key objective of the government in attempt to keep pace with other industries. The technologically advanced mindset of future generations requires a planning system that utilizes the same forms of digital communication that people are now accustomed to.
.The digitisation of the plan making process is critical to bring the planning profession in line with the industries it intends to influence and collaborate. The software we are developing is aimed at this modernization, allowing non-technically minded stakeholders to create plans that directly influence their own community
Engaging communities into the plan making process is critical to their success and using modern digital technology is core to encouraging people to join and influence the process. Engaging communities in a modern era demands modern solutions, influencing plans from using digital collaboration techniques.
We believe the creation of plans should not be the exclusive domain of technically minded experts. Instead, we feel the most successful plans are those created by and for the communities where they are located, addressing the shortage of resources at local level councils. We intend to provide those digital tools for plan making and community engagement to empower local people to influence the way their surroundings grow and adapt to modern change.
We want to enable plans to be made by the people, for the people, as opposed to top down methods from experts working in different locations with different problems. The existing methods for engaging communities are clunky at best and non-democratic at worse. People are rarely able to find documents let alone understand the technical planning jargon that is used to form legal material considerations for planning decisions. We aim to strip out this jargon and create straight talking methods for communicating with residents and businesses who want to influence their surroundings.
