Back when I did web development these things were just forms. But Shane Rattenbury has has announced we’re getting the very exciting sounding smartforms for the hiring of public land:
“Three significant improvements commence today for the permit application process to use public land such as parks, nature reserves and space outside suburban shopping centres,” Mr Rattenbury said.
“The most tangible change is that people can now use an online ‘smartform’ to apply to use public land for events and activities, as opposed to the former system that required a hardcopy form to be completed and then submitted by fax, email or post.
“The new smartform will make it easier for people to apply to use public land and, along with new online information on the TAMS website, will let people know when a permit is required for weddings, social functions and community events or for placing objects such as commercial waste skips or charity bins in a public place.
“It also indicates when permits are not required, such as when a group is holding a picnic in one of Canberra’s parks.
I quite like Shane Rattenbury.
But… Gee, thanks! I was probably going to have my picnics without asking your permission anyway.
