Search for Planning Information Using a Map

To search using our online GIS (Geographical Information System) mapping system we recommend using a fast internet connection due to the large amount of data on the maps.

Go straight to online mapping if you have used our system previously

You may be able to search without any further help once you have selected your search topic via the ‘category’ button on the mapping search page.

Follow this link to the online mapping system (Select Map if there is no Category displayed).  Next, in  Category:  select .PLANNING.

Left click on the APPLICATIONS FROM 2003 text  and the map will load. The map view is restricted so you then need to search using any of the three white boxes at the top of the map screen. Enter a street address, with or without a name/number. Then either use your enter key or the the mouse pointer to left click on FIND ADDRESS button.

On the form displayed choose an address, left click on Show at the left side of the table.

A map will then be drawn including that address. Right click in the area surrounded by a green line. This will then bring up the records for that area. Basic information about applications is then view-able on screen- you may need to scroll across the page to see everything. You can download the information as  spreadsheet.

Once you have got all the planning application numbers from the file,  search by application number only.

Please follow this link to the current search procedure.

If you cannot find the application please email

Detailed instructions for map searches are available from the ‘Help’ and ‘AccessKeys’ buttons at the bottom left of the mapping screen.

Please Note: Locations of planning applications are indicative only. The legal site outline  for a particular application is the submitted location plan. Please see our Disclaimer for Online Mapping for further explanation
