Request a planning history search

Please complete this form if you want us to carry out a planning history search or want us to check the permitted development rights on a property.

A planning history search will identify planning application reference numbers, decisions, decision dates and development descriptions of the site location dating back to 1974, when the council was formed.

We do not hold information dating back beyond 1974.

If you want us to check permitted development rights, please specify this on the form in the ‘any other information’ box.

Payment information

Searches cost £50. Please have your debit/credit card handy when you complete the form.

We will respond to your request within 10 working days by email, unless you ask for us to post information to you. 

If you have any questions, please email
