How to Use Planning Online

To use Planning Online go to the search box and enter a keyword, reference number, postcode or single line of an address. Then click search and choose  the appropriate application. You can also use the online maps to search visually.

You can also submit an application online. Help and guidance is available to complete the forms. You can also download application forms from this site to submit a paper application to us.

Please note: Payments for online applications are now working; however, when you click 'Accept' it takes about 2-3 seconds for the 'Submit' button to appear.

In addition to information on planning applications, details of representations and consultation responses on valid applications received on or after 1 April 2011 will also be available to view, with redaction applied to personal or sensitive information within documents – see policy (PDF).

Development Management

The responsibility for processing applications for planning permission and appeals following refusal of planning permission lies with our Development Management section.

This involves considering proposals, visiting sites, consulting other agencies, policy, government guidance and the Planning Acts, preparing reports and recommendations often under delegated power, preparing evidence for appeals and giving evidence at inquiries.
