There are also ambitious plans to expand the
new business by using it as a hub to offer Planning and Building
Control services to other local authorities across East Anglia and
the South East of England.
As well as delivering significant savings to
the Council and forming the basis for long-term job creation, the
new partnership will also improve public access to planning
services by enabling planning applications to be viewed online.
This is of particular importance in a largely rural district such
