Planning resilience contract extended with East Staffordshire Borough Council

Urban Vision, our joint venture with Salford City Council, has been providing development support to East Staffordshire Borough Council for the last three months to help support the council with a temporary resource gap.

We are delighted to announce that the council have now extended their contract with Urban Vision for a further three months to continue to provide planning capacity and expertise support.

Resourced from our Midlands planning services Hub, Urban Vision has seconded one of our senior planners into East Staffordshire Council’s planning team, processing a range of minor and small scale major planning applications.

Working alongside the council’s existing planning team means that our senior planner has not only been able to help the council stay on track with their planning applications but they were also able to mentor and support junior staff at the council when dealing with more complex planning applications.

Urban Vision’s Planning Team are looking forward to continue to provide our support  to East Staffordshire Council over the coming months.

By adding extra capacity, The Royal Borough of Windsor was able to maintain a high level of service to its customers by reducing planning application delays from backlogs.

The sheer volume of planning applications dealt with by Capita has been very impressive and helped us immensely during a period when our planning section was under severe pressure

One of the best elements of the service was how well Capita’s planner integrated into the Council’s team
