Decision Notice Site Reference Search
This page is designed for solicitors, conveyancers and homeowners to research planning
history and obtain copies of decision notices. As our planning register dates back
to 1947, there are many formats, maps and registers to interrogate. This has made
computerisation problematic and not wholly automated. Guidance on how to use the
system is given below. Recent decision notices are not held here, please use the
other searches above.
This is a free service. If you wish the Business Support Unit to search the records
for you, they will be pleased to help - there will however be a fee that is proportional
to the time taken.
Basic Search Help
If you have received a land charge search, or know your site number (not to be confused
with the case number which usually starts "S.") just type it in the first box, without
any "/" or letters (for example 1234), and click submit. You will then be offered
one or more Adobe Acrobat (PDF) documents that contain the decision notices. Click
on one to open it. If you have a recent version of Acrobat on your PC, it will also
search for that number in the PDF document.
The PDF documents are in numeric order, so if the copy is so poor it could not be
searched, just leaf through the book in the traditional way to find what you are
looking for. In the search box below, enter the Site Reference number then click
LBC related documents
If you already have a Listed Building reference number, following a local search,
numbered between S.LBC/1 – S.LBC.1176/A you can find the decision notice below.
These Decision notices are not searchable using the Basic Search instructions above
and are dated January 1969 – April 1994. Any Listed Building Decision dated
after April 1994 can be found using the normal search criteria.
