Search for planning applications

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

The Public Access for Planning register is Southwark Council's online database of all planning applications received since 2002. For each application, the register contains key details and dates. For more recent applications, the planning documents and drawings will also be available to view through the register. The register 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.  

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


Search for planning applications

You can search for an application by its reference 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.

As well as enabling you to view the important details and documents for current and historic applications, the Public Access for Planning register allows you to comment on all applications for which the public consultation period has yet to close. This dedicated webpage provides further information about commenting on applications.

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


Find out about a decided planning application

You can use Southwark's interactive map to view planning decisions made in the last 14 days, or to view all planning decisions made since 2005. The map can also be used to view all current and historic planning applications, including those awaiting decisions, and all appeals since 2005.
