View and comment on planning applications

You can now use Public Access to view planning application details including plans, documents, decisions and key dates, as well as comment on current applications.

Browser Compatibility – For the best experience please use the most up to date Browser. Internet Explorer is being phased out therefore we recommend either Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Safari. Those using an Android device may need to download documents rather than view them directly within the browser.

If you require access to any documents that do not appear on Public Access from 2015 onwards, please contact and these can be made available online on request.

If you require copies of planning documents for applications pre 2015, these files can be sent to you electronically for a fee of £10.00 per application file. You can request these by emailing

Data protection

We maintain a register of planning applications and applications for tree work, which includes personal details of people who have:

  • submitted a planning application;
  • commented on a planning application;
  • submitted pre-application enquiries and hedgerow removal notices; or
  • submitted a complaint about a high hedge, together with details of the person living at the property where the hedge is growing and the person who owns the property.

To maintain this register, we collect and use personal information about you. For more information about how we process this data, please see our Data Protection page.
