Consultation is a vital part of decision-making processes for Local Planning Authorities (LPAs). It involves gathering feedback, opinions, and ideas from stakeholders, and the public to inform decision-making. Many LPAs struggle to manage and process the overwhelming amount of feedback they receive from multiple channels.
To take your consultation to the next level, you need a centralised platform that can manage and process all engagement and consultee responses. Objective Keyplan is the solution you need to streamline your consultation process. With Keyplan, you can bring together paper and digital representations in one place, making it easy to manage all responses efficiently.
One of the key features of Objective Keyplan is its inclusivity. The platform is designed to widen participation, making it easy for everyone to provide comments, whether they prefer to submit their responses digitally or through manual representations. With Keyplan, you can allocate response points in manual representations, in the same way as digital responses, for comprehensive management and reporting. This means that you can collect and analyse feedback from all stakeholders, including those who are not tech-savvy or who do not have access to digital devices.
How a Centralised Platform is transformative
Objective Keyplan's centralised platform offers several benefits for consultation management, including:

Accessibility: Keyplan's inclusivity means that everyone can participate, ensuring a fair and transparent consultation process.
Efficiency: The platform provides real-time reporting and analysis, and sentiment analysis enabling you to make informed decisions quickly.
Objective Keyplan is incredibly easy to use. The platform is designed with a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to navigate and manage representations. You can easily customise your forms, set up notifications and reminders, and monitor progress. Keyplan's intuitive interface also means that you don't need any technical expertise to use it, making it accessible to everyone.
