Merton Planning Formatter

Formats Merton Council planning application descriptions/proposals nicely.

Converts uppercase descriptions to a readable mixed case format while preserving capitalisation for some proper nouns (eg Merton) and abbreviations (eg LBM, WC), use classes (eg A1, B1(c), D2), trees (eg TPO, M123, T20) and application reference numbers (eg 19/P1234).

Installation

Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

gem 'merton_planning_formatter'

And then execute:

$ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install merton_planning_formatter

Usage

Some real examples:

require 'merton_planning_formatter'

puts MertonPlanningFormatter::format(description)
