The Planning Process

We deal with most types of planning applications, from validation to decision. However, a small number are dealt with by Lincolnshire County Council, including mining and waste applications and those which relate to schools.

Viewing planning applications

Planning applications are public documents and are placed on the Planning Register. All current applications are available to any member of the public during normal office hours. If you wish to view an application that has already been decided, please call the planning support team first to make sure the file is available.

You can view details of planning applications, including plans and reports, by using the search pages on our Search, View and Comment on Applications page.

Publicity of planning applications
The Scheme of Delegation sets out who has the responsibility for deciding your planning application. This applies to planning applications such as Listed Building Consent, Advertisement consent and some other types of application.
If the application is refused the applicant has the right to appeal against the decision including any conditions imposed on approvals
