Town Planning Intelligence

Urpla applies digital innovation to transforming how town planning development application, assessment, and compliance is done. Making it simpler, faster, efficient, and more transparent for everyone. Liberating town planning authorities, community, and development industry from the burdens of the paper-based (PDF) system.

Increase transparency, clarity, accessibility, and quality of town planning requirements and simplify the development application and assessment processes and workload.

A single point of user-oriented service that intelligently guides applicants and assessment teams through applicable town planning requirements and tasks and automatically prepares town planning development application reports and notices and assessment notices and reports.

Transparency and clarity
Urpla’s powerful rules processors filter and structure the specific town planning standards, benchmarks, requirements, and processes for each town planning development application and assessment ensuring transparency, clarity and ease of comprehension while keeping everyone aligned to the same goals and quality.

Configured for each application
Every assessment-oriented work breakdown filters, sorts, and structures only those processes, requirements, and tasks applicable. Improving productivity, sharing knowledge, reducing risk, and ensuring clarity and critical auditability.

“We know, despite our efforts for standardisation, every staff member was doing things a little differently. Urpla provides us with the confidence of an automated and comprehensive process that is quality assured and the output is standardised across our teams and for community.”
Senior Business Analyst Development Assessment Branch, Logan City Council

Automate data collection

Urpla’s data tools do the collection chase and data population for you. Less time spent on admin allows more time to spend on high value tasks.

End the information chase
Whatever your staff require to get their work done, Urpla collects it automatically.

An automatic work breakdown engine
The moment an town planning development application is lodged, or the applicant responds to a request the right team member is notified and the application status and assessment processes and tasks are automatically captured and updated.

Automate the basics, focus on the complex
Applicants will know exactly what they need to action. Your team know what needs their attention and have more time to spend adding real value to ensure great urban outcomes.

“Applicants have all the information and tasks to complete the requirements needed for us to assess their application. This reduces the demand for both enquiries to Council and further information, saves so much time, and changes the fractious relationship between applicant and Council, so that we can get on with facilitating development for our community.”
