Gateshead Council Spatial will be resubmitting a bid to the Local Digital Fund for the development of a digital planning tool ).

The attached video highlights the principles of the tool and what has been achieved to date.

The tool aims to promote the SME housing developer sector by more effective management of site specific digital data.

 We are currently mapping out the procurement pathway having developed a working a functional specification which has been subject to extensive user testing.

 The bid criteria requires the lead authority to have identify two other project partners (local authorities). 

The role of the supporting partner does not require any major resource implications as Gateshead will lead the project but the partner will provide some effective critical/reviewing input. 

Happy to answer any questions/queries on this project.
