We are currently undertaking a major upgrade to our planning application data handling system – the first for over 20 years.

While the new system has now been installed we are continuing to iron out the inevitable glitches that come with such a large project.  There have been some unforeseen issues which have delayed progress since we went live at the beginning of the month.

The planning team are busy addressing the backlog of work caused by this upgrade and continuing to process applications as quickly as possible.  Please bear with us.  If you have a specific concern please contact the team at

How to use the planning application search

Below are two links that allow you to search for an application by number, street name, or area.

For the current system (applications registered before September 2022):

The blue button will take you to applications registered before September 2022. Please note any comments on applications will not be shown online until after the new system is fully upgraded. Please do not comment more than once.

Search applications

For the new planning system (applications registered from October 2022):

Select the application you are interested in to see a summary of the application, a location map of the application and then all the documents.

If you want to comment on an application, you will need to create an account. You can do this by clicking on the link below and registering in the login section.

Complete the simple form, your contact details will be kept confidential.

Commenting on an application (applications registered from October 2022)

To comment on the application there are two boxes available, one just below the location map, and one just after all the documents at the bottom of the page; both comment boxes are the same, either can be used.

You can either type your comment into the box provided, or upload a document if you prefer, either works - please do not put any personal information into your comment, including your email address, phone number or home address. If your comment contains any foul language, defamatory information or personal details it will not be shown online.

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 your comments will be checked during normal office hours before being uploaded. Please only submit your comments once.

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.
