Changes to receiving planning updates
Please note that the Planning Finder (which enabled you to follow the progress of a planning application and get notified of new applications in your area) will no longer be available from 1 December 2022 and its function will be removed from our website. If you are currently registered with Planning Finder, you will no longer be notified of applications.
However, there are other ways that you can find applications on our planning pages, where we publish the weekly planning list.
You can also “Track” a live application (registration will be required first on our planning applications system) and once the application has had a decision, you will be notified by email.
