Planning history search

Planning history search

We can supply a detailed planning history search for a property. If you would like us to search for more than one property on a site you will need to include a map or sketch of the boundary with your application. All applications made since 1983 are available through the Public Access system.

Apply for a planning history search

You can search the planning history of a property yourself using Public Access.

If you need a local land search, most lenders require this as part of the mortgage process, visit Local Land Charges.

We normally provide details of the relevant planning history when responding to a pre-application enquiry.

If a detailed planning history search is required for a specific site, or sites, this information can be provided as a separate service. The charge for this information is based on the officer time required to research the planning history. 

Planning history search fees
CategoryFee per hour excluding VAT
Major (over 9 properties in the area)£63.10
Minor (up to 9 properties in the area)£43.10
Single dwelling£23.10

Payment will be needed before we provide the details of the planning history.
