Harrow Council’s Planning Portal – down yet again

Struggling Harrow Council seems to have lost its online planning portal again today. Visitors to the council’s website are being greeted by a large banner proclaiming:

planningportaldown2Regular readers will know that the council is incapable of getting its IT systems in order, having experienced recent problems with its ‘Your Council’ portal, the planning portal on a regular basis, numerous email outages, telephone failure… the list goes on and on, although planning seems to be worst affected. Unless you count the appalling lack of working library computers, which we’ve monitored over the last year.

Harrow’s Labour-run administration will blame the out-dated IT infrastructure  it inherited from the Conservatives when it took over a couple of years back. That it was outdated might be true, but it did seem to work most of the time.
