Planning Applications

This is a list of all Planning Applications with all the most recent and 'live' applications appearing at the top. The search box function on the Council's webpages can usefully be used to search for planning applications, either by application number or address.  Similarly the data on our planning list can be retrieved using an external search engine.  This may be quicker than going back one page at a time, as applications on this website go back to 2014.  If you would like to view anything prior to 2014 then please contact us at or give us a call via 01720 424455 and leave a message.
