Changes to Planning Portal Application forms
Find out about the changes to planning application forms in Hillingdon.
The Greater London Authority is leading a project which involves changes to the Planning Portal's existing online application forms for submission to London Boroughs. This includes the addition of new questions and changes to a number of existing questions. This will enable planning authorities in London and the wider public to access information and data about planning proposals in a more effective way.
All London Planning Authorities will be going live with the new 1APP forms on 16 November 2020.
As part of this, there are a number of changes to how anyone submitting a planning application will interact with the planning system, including a number of new questions on the 1APP planning application form. The data collected will also be available to you through the London Planning Datahub on GLA's website, in due course. You'll be able to view the data relating to all other schemes in London, identify patterns and assess how it impacts your scheme.
The industry has been working towards better planning and development data for a long time, a concept reinforced by the Planning White Paper, because it's recognised that this is the biggest barrier to innovation in the proptech and plantech sectors.
This Local Digital Fund funded collaborative project between all of the Boroughs, the Mayor of London and back office system providers will create a step change in how development data provides insight into the future of our cities.
To find out more about these changes, the GLA are hosting a breakfast briefing event in partnership with Concilio on Thursday 12 November 2020 (9-10am). Tune in to hear more about the changes proposed, how this affects you and what advances this will mean for the industry.
