Maintenance to our planning application search

We'll be carrying out some updates from Tuesday 30 November to Saturday 4 December to improve the way our planning application search and comments system works.

While we carry out these works you will not be able to see or comment on any of our planning applications, appeals or enforcements.

You will also not be able to log into your online account to search for saved applications or comments.

Commenting on current applications

We will be allowing extra time for you to comment on any current applications.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
