There is a planning application branch, which needs rebasing and finishing off.

The user interface is, if I recall, functionally complete - the parser and cron tasks for processing the planning application feed needs finishing.

The limitation of the current approach is that it requires downloading, reparsing and check/update/insert on all ~2 million planning application records every evening. If upstream now have a "records changed this hour/day" feed like OSM does, then we should use that instead. The vast majority of the records are unchanged each day, and parsing them all is a multi-hour process.

Rebased and some further work carried out (see a8e7ebd and parents).

More things to do:

  • need an index on openlylocal_id
  • need columns for the rest of the attributes in the feed
  • needs scheduling as a task

Two larger issues

  • Write some unit tests for the parser
  • Should the front-end code have a switch to turn the functionality on/off easily?

The GUI work is all in place. Here are screenshots of it:

1: Any member of the site can view list of planning applications matching their area(s) of interest,
shown most recent first. Each application has a page of its own.

1 - listing of planning applications

2: That application page has full details

[No screenshot available.]

3: On the page is a 'Convert to an issue' button:

2 - convert to an issue button

4: The data is cloned into the standard ‘New issue’ form:

3 - application cloned into new-issue form

at which point it can be submitted then like any other issue.
