Planning History Searches

The planning application data held on the Authority database contains information in respect of all planning applications, consultations and notifications.

The database is intended to provide general information about planning applications within Dartmoor National Park.  Whilst every care is taken to ensure that the database is accurate and up to date, the only definitive source of information is the statutory register of applications, which you are strongly advised to check.

If you wish us to carry out a comprehensive planning history search for you on a particular site, please put your request in writing together with a location plan highlighting the specific area of land.  There is a charge for this service and for more information, please contact one of the Development Management Administration staff (tel: 01626-832093 or by email, who will be able to help.  Alternatively you can visit the Dartmoor National Park offices at Bovey Tracey and view the statutory register of applications free of charge.  It would be helpful if you could make a prior appointment if this is your preferred method.
