New feature – see who’s planning a new extension in Abergele

I’ve just added a new feature to this AbergelePost.com website. If you click on the Planning Applications link in the black strip beneath the banner, you’ll see a map of Abergele with dots showing where applications have been made to build an extension, change business use, apply for some other kind of formal consent.

The data has been ‘scraped’ from the Conwy Council website and the technology used to build this map comes from PlanningAlerts.com. Inspiration came from two conferences I attended earlier this year:

Hacks and Hackers, in conjunction with ScraperWiki
Talk About Local 2011

To get more info about individual applications, click on the link at the bottom of the big map for a text link of every application, each of which links through to the source document on the Conwy Planning site.
