Obtain a site’s planning history

If you require a planning history from 1974, this should be done online. If you ask us to carry out this search for you then charges will apply (£30 per hour with a minimum charge of £30 per address)

We are not able to confirm if permitted development rights are in place or if planning permission is required for any proposed development. Please seek independent Planning advice.

For older histories, dating back to 1948, you will need to use our search service.

You will need to provide:

  • The exact location of the site, including the full address and post code. If you do not know this we may ask you to provide a site location plan with the search area clearly indicated

  • The start and end date of the period you would like us to search

When a search is likely to take more than one hour, there will be a charge of £30 an hour together with any additional photocopying fees. We will tell you if this applies before we start.

The history will normally be researched and emailed to you within 10 working days.
