Important Information

  • This search function should not be substituted for a formal Land Charges search
  • Although we make every effort to keep the archive up to date it does not constitute the Part 1 Planning Register

Scaling of Plans

If printing plans from these pages, they will not necessarily be to the exact scale specified on the plans. We are encouraging our applicants and agents to supply plans in PDF format. PDF plans created in a recent version of Acrobat with the measuring function enabled will let anyone with Adobe Reader Version 9.4 onwards scale plans using the measuring tool.


The Council monitors the effectiveness of its development management service by sending out questionnaires to some of those that have made representations on planning applications. This is to help improve service delivery. The Council also holds a forum for planning agents every two years.
