Details of planning applications

Welcome to PublicAccess, an online service that allows you to view details and submit comments on planning applications from your own home. Please follow the link below for more information about making comments on applications. You can also use PublicAccess to monitor the progress of applications, search a list of applications received each week, view details of some historic applications and view property details by reference to a map.

Details on PublicAccess are constantly updated, but it can take several days from when a valid application is received before it is available for viewing on our website.

Before using PublicAccess you must read and accept the terms and conditions of use.
