Here you can search for both building control and planning applications for any property where these permissions have been applied for.
Before commencing the search you should make sure that you’ve got the main property address information such as street name and postcode, and if possible the application number. This will allow you to quickly access the relevant building control information for the property.
Please note that the plans, drawings and materials submitted to us are protected by the Copyright Designs and Patents Act 1988 and copies are made available in accordance with Section. 47 of that act.
You may only use material which is downloaded and or printed for consultation purposes; to compare current applications with previous schemes and to check whether developments have been completed in accordance with the approved plans.
Downloaded material may not be used for commercial purposes and further copies must not be made without the prior permission of the copyright owner.
Technical requirements for using the service
Do I need a high-speed internet connection?
No. But the system delivers a lot of information to your computer. Therefore if you are not using a high-speed (broadband) connection, you may find the map and your requested information may take a few minutes to appear.
Please be patient and remember that each time you click on a search, the system restarts the search. So clicking on the same search request more than once will not speed up the results. A symbol will appear on the screen while the database is retrieving results, so you will know that your search is in progress.
The search form and search results open in a separate window. If you are using a browser that is set to block pop-ups, you may be asked if you want to allow pop-ups from this site. You will need to click 'yes' or 'ok'. If your browser does not ask you if you want to allow pop-ups, you will need to switch off the 'pop-up blocking' option in the browser settings. Click on the help menu in your browser for details of how to do this.
Depending on the specification and age of your pc, you may get a message telling that you need a more recent version of Java to use the online system. Or you may find that the online map does not appear on your screen. In either event, use the help file to find out what to do.
