I recently reviewed a neighbour's planning application. I reported that a URL in the application was wrong and that I reported the same problem in a different application some time ago. I got a reply to say that the current application has been changed and if I'll send the reference to the closed one, they'll change that too.
It seems very obvious to me that there's a template and if it was changed, that would prevent (delay?) future problems but wouldn't fix past ones. Past ones were not subject to later rule updates but are to e.g. council address changes if asking for updates. Each datum has update rules, potentially complex. They may create a new department for greenhouse enquiries in rural areas. Small Data is hard.
