Search for planning applications and associated documents

You can check the planning history of a site or the status of a current application using our Public Access system. Public Access allows you to search by reference number, address or by a map.

Once an application has been selected you can view documents including reports and decision notices associated with that application by selecting the 'Documents' tab, then 'View associated documents'.
