Find out how to search all current and historic planning applications and decisions, and comment on current applications.
The opportunity for members of the public to comment on planning applications is an important part of the planning process. Your comments help us to reach informed decisions.
We understand that people often feel very strongly about development proposals but ask that you please ensure your comments remain respectful of others. Comments that are considered to be offensive or abusive may be removed from the website.
All submissions, published or otherwise, are reviewed by planning officers as part of the process of considering the planning application.
You can report any comments you feel are offensive to email@example.com. Please include the details of the comment (eg a screenshot or copy and pasted text) and the planning application reference number.
Our Planning Committees are split into 4 sub-committees which take place on a weekly basis.
The Planning and City Development Committee meets only on strategic and policy maters.
The links below will take you to agendas and committee report packs for each subcommittee.
To view the supporting documents for the committee cases, please search current applications.
Further information on our committees including historic committee reports and are also available on the committee pages.
Our archives contain a number of historic planning related documents dating back to the 1940s. These are stored in a remote location and can be scanned and made available for viewing upon request.
Due to the nature of the material in these files, often coming from a number of different sources, there is no guarantee that the file will be complete or indexed in a date order format. As a result, researching these documents may take a lot of time and effort on your part to locate the information you need.
The cost of identifying and scanning this information is £400. Where files cover a number of volumes, the price will increase and we will let you know of these additional charges.
