Twitterplan: The Newest Mashup in UK Local Government

I managed to catch up with Stuart Harrison/Pezholio this morning from Lichfield District Council to ask him about his new exciting development/mashup called Twitterplan. You can listen to the telephone interview here

Here is a snipet of Twitterplan introduction on Lichfield District Councils website.

Get local planning applications via Twitter

If you’re one of the many people who use social networking site Twitter and would like to receive alerts of planning applications in your area, then you’ll love Twitterplan.

Twitterplan is a new site set up by Lichfield District Council (with a little help from City of Lincoln Council and Planning Alerts) that sends a message to Twitter users whenever a planning application is submitted in their area.

It’s simple to sign up to, simply visit the Twitterplan website, enter your Twitter username and postcode, and follow the onscreen instructions.

If you don’t use Twitter, or would prefer to get alerts via email, then you can get alerts by signing up on the Planning Alerts website.

This service covers 324 local authorities, including Lichfield, so spread the word!

Warwickshire’s R&D website

Just in case you wondering who else is working on some exciting mashups, have a look at Warwickshire Councils R&D website. They’re working on some interesting projects with me in the near future. You could find their Web Services and API Dump here. Look out for a post featuring their projects here on LGEOResearch soon.
