You may have read in the press that Royal Mail has issued an injunction against a company that supplies post codes to Planning Alerts. See link.
Whilst this hasn’t affected the feeds coming from Planning Alerts to our site as they are are longitude/latitude based, it does look likely to affect the long term viability of Planning Alerts com. This is important as the Trafford Planning database has been upgraded and it therefore requires a Planning Alerts volunteer to upgrade their database to revise the feed, and frankly I think there has to be question mark over whether we’ll ever get the trafford planning applications coming through in a manner that can be mapped on google.
We’re still getting Manchester and Salford’s applications but I may have to rely on reposting the weekly list. Not as good but we’ll see.
Sorry for a highly technical update
