How GIS Can Support the Production of Local Development Plans
Track: Urban and Regional Planning
Authors: Mandy Maas
Local authorities in the UK are facing the problem of tremendous housing shortage. To overcome this, new local plans are needed to reallocate land. We developed a repeatable chain of ESRI tools to identify suitable sites. Our approach addressed data challenges of regular updates, mobile/desk-based analysis and concurrent editing. This work exemplifies how experts in local planning, government, and GIS can work collaboratively in ArcMap, Portal, Collector and arcpy to solve a complex challenge.
