With software engineering needs evolving, this contract will support The Planning Inspectorate’s journey of modernising its planning services with the transformation of a number of the Inspectorate’s end-to-end services including appeals, applications and examinations management.

The partnership combines Kin + Carta’s global digital transformation and delivery excellence with Fimatix’s insight and expertise of working on Government Digital Service transformation – enabling the two companies to work as one team on a range of different projects, delivering both exceptional outcomes and value for money across the public sector.

Sam Ineson, Public Sector Director at Kin + Carta said: “This initiative from The Planning Inspectorate has been designed to make the UK work better for all, which totally chimes with Kin + Carta’s mission to ‘help build a world that works better for everyone’. 

“Our software and digital services expertise, in conjunction with Fimatix’s Government digital experience, means we’re supporting the Planning Inspectorate to deliver efficiently and effectively. 

“This is the kind of work we love to get involved with; that makes a difference to our society and that helps our country work just that little bit better.”

Tim Howarth, CEO at Fimatix, said: “We’re delighted to be helping the Planning Inspectorate in its efforts to support the Government deliver on its digital transformation agenda.

“The award of this contract underlines the scale, expertise and experience that Fimatix and our partnership with Kin + Carta creates.”
