Making space for digital growth
The rise of the tech sector and how planners can support its evolution
Digital technology is the UK’s fastest growing sector. Recent statistics show that it is growing as much as 50% faster than the wider economy, and its spatial footprint has become increasingly evident in towns and cities across the UK.
With this in mind, what role should the Planning sector play in supporting this evolution, and how can it guide the development of the digital economy?
There is a closer synergy to consider between both industries too. As the tech sector continues to prosper, digitisation has the potential to revolutionise the planning system, delivering innovative tools that help to free up time, maximise resources and boost productivity.
This latest paper from Idox takes a closer look at the steps planners can take to support the tech sector’s evolution in local areas, while also exploring the positive impact digitisation can have on planning and wider local government services.
