View older applications and records

We make certain details available relating to planning applications that we've received since July 1948.

The most recent 30 years or so are available for inspection online through the different versions of Public Access.

Searching for older records can require checking an index (usually an annotated plotting card or map), with the application details held on microfiche. These are available for inspection at the different council offices.

You can use our paid planning advice services to:

  • look up the complete planning history of a property
  • find, scan and provide documents held on microfiche such as a planning decision notice, appeal decisions or a Tree Preservation Order

If you'd like to come to a council office to inspect the microfiche records, please contact us by email below. Please include 'Inspect historic planning documents' in the subject line.
