The project is still advancing – albeit rather slower than before. I had a couple of meetings related to RaP this week and found some time early in the week to keep things moving. However, I’ve picked up 3 new additional projects this week, on top of the other major one I was already delivery managing, so didn’t find any time to work on this after Tuesday.
Our user research is still going ahead. I’m looking forward to hearing feedback on our proposed reporting categories and our website mock-ups.
Our work with Alloy is preceding well. The Highways team is starting to use it for their work and the integration with FixMyStreet is moving forward.
We got some great feedback from our subject matter expert staff about the mySociety proposal for recording noise nuisance in FixMyStreet. We’ll be feeding that by to helping them iterate their prototype.
No-one has a problem of changing priorities in a crisis. mySociety has been very open to discussions of potentially moving the items in the combined timeline to accommodate the raft of new things the Council is needs to focus on at the present time.
It’s increasingly hard to find time to work on this – either for myself or folks in other teams we’re depending on. We want to keep some momentum going but it’s looking like things might take a bit longer than planned in the current circumstances..
Our widely distributed team continues to do great work on this. Thanks to Matthew, Louise H., Louise W., Struan, David, Dave, Rasit, William, Ade, Sandrine, Emma and many others.
We’re going to need to have some pragmatic and frank discussions next week as to how we move forward. We’re all keen to make this happen -it’s just going to be a matter of when.
