"The digitisation of planning as outlined in the Whitepaper presents an exciting step in speeding up the planning process and improving engagement with communities. We are already working with VU.CITY and some of our local authority partners to be a leader in digital consultation in line with the ambitions outlined in the new government Whitepaper."

"Development and architecture are embracing technology at a rapid rate but many ideas are impractical or premature and don’t work. The VU.CITY platform is already making an essential difference to design and planning decisions in London and clearly will go much further."

"VU.CITY provided a valuable resource on our work for Southwark Charities for an emerging scheme along Blackfriars Road in central London where, working with Fathom Architects, we were able to test different versions in context, have live discussions, and conclude the best approach."

"Salford has a busy planning team, which manages a high number of large-scale developments. It is essential that the best form of development is secured on the right sites in the city, and to help with that we have been using VU.CITY. Being able to work with digital models within the VU.CITY platform has enabled the team to assess their impact more quickly from viewpoints of our choice."

"Being able to extrude massing instead of waiting for the architect to send the model of a proposed development means we can start work on it ourselves."
