Definitive Map Modification Order Application Register Help

The Definitive Map Modification Order (DMMO) application register is displayed with applications in descending priority order as the default view (i.e. the highest priority application on the register is presented first). Please note, however, the priority list is not static and Cornwall Council has the freedom to promote or demote applications in line with the Cornwall Council Revised Policy Statement 2006.

You can view particular application(s) by entering search criteria for the following fields:

  • The postcode of a property near the site (please note, this is not the postcode of the applicant). You can perform either a full or partial postcode search;
  • The WCA reference number of the application;
  • The City/Town/Village near the site;
  • The Parish(es) in which the application lies;
  • The Former District(s) in which the application lies;
  • The Electoral Division(s) in which the application lies;
  • Keywords in the following fields: Effect of Application, Path Number and Property near alleged route.

The City/Town/Village, Parish, Former District and Electoral Division fields have an auto-complete function that provides the available matches as you type in the search field. The Postcode, WCA Ref and Keywords fields are free text fields.

NB Please be aware that if you enter values in multiple search fields only records that match ALL the criteria will be returned.

In addition, the following fields can be sorted automatically into either ascending or descending numeric or alphabetic order as appropriate by clicking on the column header:

  • WCA Reference
  • Effect of Application
  • Postcode (of property near the site)
  • City/Town/Village

To restore the default view (i.e. so that the applications are returned to being presented in descending priority order) please click on ‘View All Orders’. This may be necessary if you have changed the order in which the applications are displayed, either after having run any searches or after having automatically sorted the applications as described above, and want to return the applications to the default priority order.

Under section 53(5) of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, Cornwall Council as surveying authority is required to maintain a register of applications for orders to modify the definitive map and/or statement.

The register is a statutory document which must contain specific information with respect to each application and must be available for the public to view and copy any of the details contained in the register.

The register must contain an index to assist any person to trace any entry in the register.
