Planning online

Our Public access system has now been upgraded to the latest version. The service allows the public and consultees to view planning documents including Appeals and Enforcements, Building Control and Licensing applications.

Anyone familiar with the current version will immediately notice its new look but will quickly find it easy to use and understand.  The new version comes with additional and updated functionality giving an all round improved user experience, including the ability to create a user account, which allows users to:

  • Manage and edit their user profile
  • Save common searches
  • Track cases of interest
  • Automatically be notified of any cases status changes
