Kildare County Council Case Study

Customer Name:Kildare County Council


The Problem

Kildare County Council had been operating a system used to manage application and exemptions from planning regulations. The technology behind their system was being discontinued and Kildare County Council required a new system which improved on the functionality of their old system with a simple user friendly interface.

What We Did

Mallon Technology employed open technology to ensure our solution would be future proof. Developed on GeoServer, SQL Server and OpenLayers we were able to create a rich web interface, utilising Ajax to provide a highly responsive system.

The system consisted of:

  • A web-based data entry interface to:
    • Capture and manage applications for exemptions from planning regulations
    • Generate letters used to correspond with applicants
  • A web-based mapping and digitisation interface to:
    • Locate developments using a gazetteer lookup
    • Utilise background mapping from a third party Web Mapping Service
    • Map the locations of developments for which exemptions have been requested
    • Import development boundaries from AutoCAD format files submitted by applicants

The Benefits

  • Legacy system protects Kildare County Council from any future technology withdrawals
  • Faster processing of applications
  • Visualisation of planning process
  • Reduced costs and resources saved
  • Extensible solution engaging possible integration with other Kildare County Council software
