We are working with local planning authorities and the Department for Levelling Up, Homes and Communities (DLUHC) and other public bodies in the UK to develop Plan✕, an open source platform for creating and publishing planning services.
Its a powerful public tool that allows public bodies to collaboratively build and run user-centered, 'rules-as-code' digital services, that bake legislation, policies and guidance into the services themselves, making complicated, opaque services like planning simpler and more transparent for everyone.
Plan✕ is already being used by a growing number of planning authorities, but over the next two years we will be scaling-up its adoption across government – and likely to multiple governments. It's an exciting mission, with potential to transform how a key part of government works, and the lives of millions of people, but it is also a challenge.
As we scale we are looking for a developer with DevOps skills to help develop and maintain our infrastructure, and potentially other back-end features on an occasional basis.
