Click here to go to the Public Access for Planning online register

The online Public Access for Planning register contains information on all planning applications received by the Council since 2002 and is updated on a daily basis. 

You can use the planning register to;

  • view a planning application,
  • comment on a planning application, or
  • find out about a decision that has been made.  


Search for planning applications

You can search for an application by its number or address using the quick search page. Alternatively, you can use the advanced search to search for an application by the date received or decided, address, ward, community council, conservation area, application type (e.g. full or listed building), type of development (e.g. householder, large scale dwellings etc.) or by the name of the applicant or agent.

This register also includes details of planning appeals received and decided.

To find out further information on how to search for a planning application refer to our 'how to' guide.

You can view a interactive map of live planning notices. The interactive map plots the location of all planning applications for which the public consultation period has yet to close, and allows member of the public to comment on applications through the map.
