Property history information

We maintain statutory records of planning applications and decisions which in some cases date back 40 or 50 years.

Details of planning applications dating from 1990 (older in some cases) can be accessed via our online register.

Supporting documents are available online for planning applications decided after May 2000. Most of our physical records are stored offsite so we are unable to provide a 'walk in' service. To view historic applications prior arrangement will be required.

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.
