I spent the day today putting together a planning application for a house extension in Aberdeenshire. The really cool thing was I was able to prepare, preview and submit the whole application electronically.
Now I might be showing my age here but I remember when I was on my year out we used to take three days to put an application together. Preparing the drawings, Plotting onto tracing paper, running off copies on the dyeline printer, folding all the drawings, handwriting the forms. It was almost a rite of passage for year out students.
It’s amazing how things have moved on in only 15 years. Perhaps this is a glimpse at the much anticipated paperless office?
