Search building control applications online

You can search building control applications using various fields including address, the proposal, reference number or even using the mapping tool. We have produced a guide to help you search.

Please note: There will be details of applications online, however you will not be able to view the full application as building control applications are not public documents.

If you register with the service you can also

  • track the progress of applications
  • save searches that you may want to use again and again.

This service also links to online planning applications. 

If you think any of the information is incorrect, please contact us.
