Search planning applications

Planning Application Information Online allows you to view details of planning applications. You can monitor the progress of an application, make written representations while it is being considered and have the ability to receive email notifications relating to the applications or locations you are interested in.

  • view current and historic planning applications by using a keyword, reference number, postcode or single line of an address
  • comment on any current planning application
  • register so that you can track applications, save searches and get email notifications

The online user guide (PDF, 2MB) and at a glance user guide (PDF, 198KB) will assist you with these processes.

Please Note: To comment on applications or to receive email notifications using this system, you will need to register your details and guidance on how to do this are in the User Guide. You can view details of planning applications submitted since January 1977, details of enforcement enquiries received and any appeals made against decisions made on planning applications and enforcement cases.

Service availability

The Planning Application Information Online service is normally available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except for periods set aside for system maintenance which will usually take place between 3am and 5am.

Non-material amendments to approved applications

Non-material amendments to previously approved proposals now require the submission of an application. However, it is not normal procedure to notify neighbouring properties, or those who made representations on the original application, that a non-material amendment application has been made.
