Historic decision notice search

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 submit.
