Please Note: Whilst details of pre-application planning enquiries have been made public via the online planning register, because they are not planning applications they are not subject to the statutory consultation or notification requirements. Your comments are not being sought at this stage.

Please view our commenting on a planning application fact sheet for further guidance. Our self help video takes you through the process of tracking applications and making comments.

We need your views - Let us know what you think of the planning web pages, how easy it is to contact us and how we deal with complaints by taking five minutes to fill in our customer views survey.  Your comments will be kept strictly confidential, with the purpose of helping improve the service we deliver to you.

Most archived planning application data and some archived documents are available to view, depending on the information transferred from the previous County/District authorities.   Applications that are withdrawn are no longer available to view and applications found to be invalid after registration will be removed from the web-site until the information required has been received. 

Pre-application planning enquiry details are likely to contain minimal information because of their early, preliminary status. Pre-applications will have PREAPP at the end of the reference number e.g. PA12/016573/PREAPP.

You can request email notifications for applications and enquiries in your area or other applications you are interested in.  These will alert you as the applications progress through the planning system.

Plans and associated documents relating to planning applications can be viewed online via the online planning register using the documents tab. You can view our planning documents help card for detailed instructions.
