    Start updating the department first by providing your officers with vehicles to allow them to travel to the sites that need to be inspected. Ensure your department is updated with the technology required to communicate with the contracting sector more effectively . Public Information on each officer in their related field and sector of responsibilities would be a place to start. IMO the overall Planning department works good. It just needs more funding to keep up. Good luck.

  5. Congratulations Ms Pereira.

    This Department of Planning will have many opportunities to create sustainable living practices, which for an Atlantic island faced with the science based facts of global warming, will be quite formidable. We look forward to reading about all the good work you and your team will be heading up.
