Archived planning applications (pre 1995)

Planning application documents are only available online for applications since 1995.  The vast majority of all earlier documents are archived, although you should check online first as some may already have been placed online.

Clicking on the start button below will take you to an online form where you can enter the reference number of the file you require and pay the £40 fee per file.  Our staff will then retrieve the documents and arrange for the documents to be available online, normally within 21 days.

A separate online request form must be submitted for each archived planning application that you wish to view.

You will need your debit or credit card details to make payment for the service.

You will need the planning reference number for the archive file you wish to view.  If you do not know the reference number you can do a property or map search online to find any applications since 1977.  Applications prior to 1977 are not available using this search and you will need to email with the address of the site to ask for any reference numbers prior to this date.
