7. The solution
The solution is documented in several parts.
The Service Schema
The service schema is a list of data fields, including every piece of information that might be required in a householder planning application. Although there are more than 250, many applicants will only have to complete less than half of these.
The schema was created by taking every document involved in planning applications and dismantling it. Then removing duplicates and recategorising them in a way that is coherent to users.
The schema is a continuous, open work of progress.

The Service Map
The service map shows the full user journey as a flowchart. It is a work in progress. You can view the original here.
There are also a number of sub-sections of the service map, also documented as flowcharts. These document the logic of the dynamic forms.
