Everything you need for an effective consultation

Find the most sustainable sites for development

Assess all the sites in your local authority

We pull together data from sources like: the land registry, call-for-sites submissions and your existing databases. So, you can see all of the potential development sites.

Combine our data with yours without an in-house GIS expert

Our self-service data uploader means that you don't need to be a GIS expert to add or refresh sites or layer data in PlaceMaker. You can use publicly available data or upload your own. And don't worry, if you get stuck our in-house tech support and data science teams can help you out.

Track changes and collaborative working

Our site details page creates a log of all activity related to a site in the platform. Users can also add notes to sites. So, you can discuss site potential without getting lost in a messy email chain.

Test development strategies and growth scenarios

Use our residential, commercial and open-space development scenarios to test how your sites perform in different settings. You can also create custom scenarios to find the sites that are most suitable for your communities.

For example, you can adjust the distance that sites need to be from a type of amenity or the percentage they can overlap with a layer, in order to calculate a scenario suitability score.
