Planning history check

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

The history check will 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.

For clarity 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 £58.75.

We will require payment before carrying out your request. Payment maybe made by cheque, online or over the phone. 

Please note, the fee is for the time we spend researching the history check; we cannot guarantee the quality of the information we supply to you.

How to apply

You can submit your request online or alternatively download and print off a copy of the form, complete it and post back to us.
