Planning history check

How to check the history of a property or piece of land

The history check does not include information relating to building control applications. This information is data protected, and any requests must be made in writing from either the owner of the property or their solicitor. For more information, visit building control applications.

If your history search is for a piece of land/premises that does not have an easily identifiable boundary, you will need to submit a plan to identify the area to be searched upon.


The cost for this service is £65.20.

How to apply

You can submit and pay for your request online. (You can also pay by cheque or over the phone)
