The Borough of Merton has decided to look into City Knowledge as a tool for better monitoring of the Merton Rule. To obtain the initial information for this rule the Merton Council requires developers to submit Building Birth Certificates indicating what carbon reduction methods they will implement. These forms, however, are cumbersome for the developers to complete and time consuming for the Merton Council to evaluate. The goals of this project are to use the principles of City Knowledge to lay the groundwork for the prototype of the monitoring system as well as to create an intuitive online entry form to replace the current Building Birth Certificates.
