DCP Online enhancements

You may have noticed DCP Online has changed, with even more information and tools to help you! Below is a summary of some of the new enhancements.

NPPF: Worried about the impact of NPPF? DCP National Guidance (formerly Ministerial Advice) has been updated to include the impact of NPPF on that specific section, so no need to wade through everything, trying to understand its impact on your development

Featured Appeals: Update DCP Online instantly by viewing the most recent appeals for all major DCP sections, click   to use the latest appeals function. Also save time by clicking   to read a full description of cited appeals without having to go to COMPASS Online. Click here for more information.

Enhanced Search: Find what you are looking for easily by using our new search function. Select where in DCP you search including specific areas of DCP such as Editors Notes and Appendix. Results now display a breadcrumb trail of DCP sections quickly showing you the most relevant result query

Easier viewing: DCP is more readable online as we have standardised text. Relevant search results are easier to find as we have added the number of times your search term features in any given results with direct links to that section

Editors Notes: Keep up to date, click   to view Editors Notes, now displayed alongside each section for the latest information on that topic. The Editors Notes button at the top on the display bar will give you a table of Notes available for the whole section

End Session: Having problems logging in because someone forgot to log out and you have hit maximum number of users? Clear your account instantly by using the customer administration area. This enables subscription holders to end live sessions and allow other to log in

If you have any questions or would like to pre-book a free 20 minute training session on how these enhancements can help you call 01452 835 820 or email dcs@haymarket.com.
