This service is restricted to planning histories and enforcement cases. It covers the period from 1975 to the present date. Complex searches may attract a higher charge, by arrangement.
To request a planning history search a covering letter is needed with a location plan and a cheque for £25 (including VAT) for domestic searches and £50 for commercial searches.
For an appointment to view the register please contact the Records Team. We are able to provide up to 10 minutes free help but anyone requiring further assistance will have to pay in advance at a rate of £50 per hour or part hour.
If a full paid search is urgent and is for an easily identified numbered property, an expedited search service is available.
