With insights gathered across political, economic, environmental and social domains, this new issue of City Innovation Brief is a go-to guide for busy city managers looking to keep pace and know what others are doing, and a window onto customer demand for businesses in the advanced urban services sector.
This issue also features a deep dive into innovation in planning services, particularly related to digitisation and data to coincide with the second annual PlanTech week.
Nicola Yates, Chief Executive Officer at Future Cities Catapult said:
“Innovation in the planning system offers huge potential gains for local authorities, businesses and citizens through improving the pace and transparency of the planning process, as well as opening up opportunities for new entrants to build products and services on top of the data unlocked by the planning system”
“This is a critical moment for UK Plc. The UK can be world leader in digitising the planning system in the same way that we are in Buildings Information Modelling (BIM), which has digitised the architecture and engineering professions. At Future Cities Catapult we have invested energy and resources to help Britain take full advantage of that opportunity, examples of which are included in this latest City Innovation Brief.”
