Things have been a little quiet here lately. We’ve been extremely busy with a range of projects and blogging has been lower on our list of priorities for the past few weeks. We’re also on the cusp of launching our new website, to replace our existing site which is now a little dated. One of the main features of the new site will be an environmental, archaeological and planning ‘hub’. Designed around and using ‘Buddypress’ (probably), it will provide our readers and experts in the range of relevant disciplines, with a user friendly, social networking style hub/arena to help other users understand the planning process, development guidelines, guides on where to go for further information and general tips. There will be special feature pages and news items as well as links to other sites of use. The idea is for it to be a moderated, open source tool for everyone, limited only by our time and the time of the moderators. Once its’s up and running we’ll add items over time and hope that others will assist in developing it. A clearer idea of the site will emerge in the coming weeks. So, check back over the next few weeks for updates.
We’re also migrating the blog to the new website, but I think there’ll be no need to update feedreaders or subscriptions – as far as I know you’ll be automatically redirected. All earlier posts and comments will be available on the new site as well.
