The London borough of Lambeth struggles to maintain clean and safe public spaces due to their inefficient licensing and enforcement systems. The purpose of this project was to review these systems and recommend improvements to increase public compliance and administrative efficiency. We interviewed local businesses, other borough councils, and Lambeth Council employees to identify problems and potential solutions. We created a variety of solutions ranging from a license fee calculator to recommending the placement of ashtrays outside of Underground stations. The Council’s outdated software was the most problematic issue we discovered. We recommended 16 software features that satisfied our project’s purpose and identified software that implements most of these features.
