West Dorset District Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council will be introducing a new system for members of the public to search and comment on planning applications.  The new ‘IDOX Public Access’ system, set to launch in late January, has been designed to provide an efficient and easy-to-use process for users.
Currently comments received by post have to be added manually by officers in order for them to be publicly visible. The new system, allows for improved efficiency and transparency for users.
Anyone using the system will first need to create a profile in order to submit comments on applications. This will also enable the opportunity to save searches and track applications as they go through the planning process.  North Dorset District Council has already introduced the system.  A user guide which will be available when the system is launched.
