The primary objective for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBKC) is to help people to understand what is being proposed in a planning application, to be able to comment on this easily from their smart phone or tablet, and to share their comments via social media. The borough will place a particular focus on improving engagement across all age groups and involving people who are not familiar with the planning system.

For more information on how smarticipate will be used in RBKC, visit the Resources page and check out the Urban Stories.

The Urban Stories provide examples of how the smarticipate platform can be applied. While the stories themselves are based on the real capabilities of the platform, the characters in the Urban Stories are fictitious. They serve to display the type of common issues that citizens, public authorities and businesses have in urban areas, and how smarticipate can be used to help them tackle these issues.
