Informing the strategy

To inform development of the Digital Strategy for Planning we have drawn on a number of sources including user research, horizon scanning and case studies on how digital has been harnessed for engagement.

This package of work is the basis for the evidence-based recommendations which will be contained in the Digital Strategy for Planning.

It will enable us to take a user-centric approach to design, ensuring that user needs and wants are at the heart of the work we will collaboratively take forward.
