Search for an application
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 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.
You should not include any personal data about yourself that you would not wish to appear online. You should also not include any personal information about any other individual, or anything that could be considered offensive, defamatory or discriminatory. Any comments should focus on relevant planning issues, not personal circumstances.
You are responsible for any statements that you make, and any content that is considered to be unacceptable will not be uploaded or will be removed.
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.
Planning Alert System
You can now subscribe to receive email alerts > for when a new planning application is registered by the Authority. You have the ability to define your search area either by address, parish, area or the whole national park. Alerts are sent on a weekly basis and will contain a link to the planning documents area of our website. You can unsubscribe at any time.
Availability of documents
We aim to publish new planning applications on the online planning service, including the plans and documents associated with these applications within five working days of registering the application.
We are not able to guarantee that the electronic file record at every stage in the process is a full record of all application documents. This is because documents may be received in many different ways and formats, and at different stages in the process. There will therefore be
occasions where not all the documents will be available to view through the website.
If a particular document you are looking for is not displayed, you may wish to try a few days later.
Please be aware some application files may be large, and so cannot be viewed as a whole document. In these cases you can view the information by selecting the thumbnails option instead of the whole document.
If you experience any problems please email firstname.lastname@example.org, including as much information as possible, including the planning application number.
To view the electronic documents on the planning case files, your computer must be able to open PDF files. If you have any difficulty viewing the documents the Adobe Acrobat Reader can be freely downloaded from: https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/
