Search for a planning application

Search the planning register

The planning register allows you to search for a planning application by filling in just one of the following fields:

  • application reference number, for example SL/2014/9999 (enter the slashes and the year in full)
  • address
  • parish
  • case officer

You will be able to see all the documents (except financial or sensitive material) submitted with a planning application.

If the application is invalid, you will not be able to see it until the required information is received.

Applications can normally be viewed online within five days of receipt of a valid application.
