Tips for searching

Plans for applications which have been given new addresses, such as new houses, will be found on the original address for the application, e.g Land off Manchester Road. The completion certificates for these new addresses, however, will be found by searching for the new addresses.

Information on the current status of every application is available in our database for applications which have been completed since the 1st of January 2008.


We need to keep records of applications received for the last 15 years. Although we do have some archived applications in the office, we do not hold any details of applications submitted before 1983.
