You can search for a planning application, an enforcement action or a planning appeal by address, postcode or map. You can also look at applications by week or month.

You can also make comments about an application, or track and set up alerts for new planning applications in your area of interest.

Measuring plans - You can take dimensions from submitted drawings using the Adobe Measuring Tool that allows you to measure distances, angles and areas of objects in PDF planning application documents. This will help inform your feedback on applications where you would like to put forward your comments. You will need the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC which you can download for free.  

If you wish to make comments about an application, you can only make comments relating to 'planning considerations'. These, for example, include matters such as:

  • The impact of a proposal on your property
  • The proposed design and materials
  • Issues relating to vehicular access and parking
  • Impact on trees
  • Noise issues
  • Concerns about flooding

Note:  We may remove comments that are defamatory or malicious.

There are also matters which are not classed as 'planning considerations' and so cannot be considered in the determination of an application. Examples of such matters include:

  • Loss of value to your property
  • Loss of a view
  • Boundary and neighbour disputes
  • The impact of a proposal on private drainage systems
