Tendring saves £150,000 per annum with Idox e-Planning
Each planning application received by a local planning authority normally results in a number of consultations. These consultations are issued to neighbours, county and parish councils, Environment Agency, National Heritage and utility companies such as gas, electricity and water companies.
Traditionally all consultations were issued by post and this resulted in significant costs associated with the production of multiple copies of the planning documentation as well as the costs of postage.
The delays associated with the issue and receipt of paper files also impacted on the planning process. The automation of these processes provides the potential for significant cost and service benefits.
