How to use the planning application search

How to search for an application

As search information must match our records exactly to bring up a result, it is often best to search using the planning application code (e.g. 17/0001). If the application code is not available to you then search using a key part of the address (e.g. for 34 Fore Street, search 'Fore Street') together with the parish. Alternatively you can search for a planning application using our interactive planning map.

Commenting on a planning application

To comment on a planning application, search for the case you wish to comment on and then click on 'Comment on application' and complete the form.

Please note that under the terms of the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985, any correspondence on a planning application file can be made available to the applicant or other members of the public via the website.
