Search, View and Comment on Applications

We offer a number of online services - you can search, view and comment on planning applications online

You can search for planning applications online. You can find many details about a specific application. Details can include:

  • What type of application it is
  • The plans and elevations (for newer applications only)
  • Supporting documents and reports
  • Information on objections, letters of support and consultations

You can also find decision notices for all applications from 1975 - 2000 using our planning document reader.

We will not publish any comments that contain offensive or potentially libelous and/or defamatory comments. Details of how any such comments will be handled can be found in in the Icon for pdf libel and defamation policy [26.04KB].


The Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985 requires that any written correspondence must be made available for public inspection. It is not therefore possible to treat your comments in confidence and any correspondence, including names and addresses, will be open to both press and public and will be available on our website.  In the event of an appeal relating to an application, your comments may also appear on the Planning Inspectorate website.
