Wansbeck! First council to provide machine readable planning notices.

Wansbeck in northern England is providing their planning applications in the PlanningAlerts.com format. They are the first council to provide this data in a machine readable format, simply at the initiative of their web dev. Yea for motivated individuals and for councils getting it! This is the long term goal, and no one really wants to write a screen scraper .. the best day for a screen scraper is the day it’s retired.
