View Planning Applications and Comment
The Council’s Planning Public Access System is being worked on and monitored due to an ongoing intermittent fault. As a result the service may be unavailable for short periods (of a few minutes). If you do experience problems please report them to email@example.com identifying the time and date together with any other useful details.
Our Planning Public Access system will let you view planning applications, planning appeals and enforcement Cases back to 1990. As well as looking at past applications you will also be able to view current planning applications including plans, comments and important dates which you need to be aware of.
Once you have found the application you want to look at, you can then see the documents associated with this application. These can include the application forms, plans and decision (if made). If the decision has not yet been made, you can also click, 'Make a public comment' and your comments will be sent straight to the planning officer, for example if you want to make a observation, support or object to a planning application.
The "Public Access" link on the right allows you to search for current planning applications as well as previous ones back to 1990. There are a number of ways to search including by address, application number, parish, dates and using an interactive map.
Please note that unfortunately the maps don't currently display properly if you are using Internet Explorer 10. However if you put your browser into compatibility mode, then the maps will display correctly.
