Powys Section 31(6) Deposit Digitisation

Client: Powys County Council

Section 31(6) DepositIn order to meet Welsh Government requirements for planning application searches Powys County Council required their Section 31(6) deposits to be available as digital data. Exegesis SDM were contracted to create a digital layer and associated scanned deposit documents.

Each of the statements and statutory declaration documents relating to a Section 31(6) Deposit was scanned into a separate PDF document. The boundary of each deposit was then digitised, with multiple boundaries created if the boundary changed between statements / statutory declarations. 

The digitised boundaries were then linked to the associated attribute data to produce a digital layer so that Powys staff can undertake spatial searches to check whether a planning application is affected by Section 31(6) deposits.
