Plantech has arrived!
Our Site Assessment tool is a new piece of software designed by planners for planners. It acts as the workstation for local government planners when they are assembling the evidence base for their local plan.
The Site Assessment tool uses advanced geospatial and data analytics techniques to appraise development potential at an unprecedented scale. The tool has already digitised many of the key processes behind establishing an evidence base for a Local Plan.

Interested in Digital Site Assessment?
On the 16th March 2022, we were joined by officers from three local planning authorities for a special 45-min lunch and learn event for local authorities. Our guests shared their own learning and experiences from undertaking experiments in digital site assessment techniques for local plan-making.Watch our Digital Site Assessment Showcase

The Site Assessment tool works by taking a local authority’s own method of assessing sites and turning it into a geospatial algorithm to automate the initial site data collection, processing and analysis. This algorithm can then be run across every single registered (and unregistered if desired) piece of land in a given district, borough, city or even region. It is a revolutionary way of demonstrating that ‘no stone has been left unturned’ in the search for suitable land for development. The PlaceMaker suite can then become a central repository for local authority and other stakeholder comments, representations and files relating to each specific site. PlaceMaker can therefore enable a truly dynamic evidence base for decision making now and into the future.London Borough of Hounslow Case Study
