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.
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 £300. Where files cover a number of volumes, the price will increase and we will let you know of these additional charges.
Please be aware that, due to the existing laws covering Data Protection, you can only view this information at the council offices.

Unfortunately, due to some technical issues, email alerts and notifications are not currently working with the MyWestminster account.
We are in the process of replacing the system and anticipate this should be available by end of February 2020.
In the meantime you can still view and comment on planning and licensing applications online and any existing subscriptions will not be affected.
We apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
