How to View a Planning Application

The CEC Planning Portal is an online store of all applications and decisions. It holds the documents relating to the application including detailed plans. Each application has a unique reference number which is needed to find everything about it.

To view an application, copy & paste the Application Reference into the search box in the Planning Portal. The Application Reference is is of the format 12/12345/XXX and is shown beside each application.  

 

How to Comment on a Planning Application

Reminders

  • Make sure comments are allowed - Applications can go through several stages and comments cannot always be made at every stage - the Application will indicate this.
  • Submit comments as soon as possible - the Application will show the end date for comments and the timescale can be quite short
  • Focus on valid and relevant aspects - What you can Comment on 
  • A simple Yes or No along with a brief statement of your reasons is enough - just make sure it is clear whether you are for or against the Application.
