You can view applications or check if an application has been made or registered in the following ways:

Please follow this link to the current (temporary) search procedure. You can only search by application number.

Search on a map use the online mapping system and then use the application numbers found to search using the Search Applications facility.

Further advice:

Where you know the application number, please follow this link to the current (temporary) search procedure.

If you want to search an area you can do this on the online mapping system. There are detailed instructions for different types of searches on individual pages.

Applications since January 2011 have files named and loaded individually, and the whole application will be labelled either Current or Decided in the Status column.

Applications between 2011 and January 2022 have the signature on the  website copy of the Decision Notice removed (the original applicant gets a signed copy). For decisions from January 2022 the signature is an electronic signature applied by our system.

Contact us by email to for information about the current charge for a signed decision notice.
