Planning Portal is the government-founded website for online planning applications for England and Wales. After FTSE-listed Mears Plc bought 75% ownership, management approached The Internet Works to help commercialise the website by capitalising on our expertise in building revenues from blue chip brands, in this case targeting the home improvement market. Currently 85% of planning applications in England and Wales are made through, including both residential applications made my homeowners or their contractors, as well as by professionals for commercial projects. The website, which is the key building regulations resource, is soon to be relaunched after a redesign.
