Planning application documents are only available online for applications since 1995. The vast majority of all earlier documents are archived, although some may already have been placed online.
As part of our fees and charges review in April 2020 a fee of £20 per planning application for retrieval of documents from the archive was introduced.
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 £20 fee per file. Our staff will then retrieve the documents and arrange for the documents to be available online, normally within 10 working days.
A separate online request form must be submitted for each archived planning application that you wish to view.
Please note that due to the current covid-19 situation this service may be subject to delays.
