Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps they are taking to ensure that the Planning Inspectorate is able to communicate decisions electronically, and that its website allows members of the public to access appeal decisions. [HL3493]

The Minister of State, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (Lord Rooker):

The Planning Inspectorate is developing a new online planning casework service for making and tracking the progress of planning appeals and other casework. The new service will enable the public to search for and view new appeal decisions. It is anticipated that the new service will be rolled out progressively from mid-November this year.
