Accessing planning records
From 2000 onwards planning applications were recorded directly into the Council's electronic database and as such no new plotting sheets were created. To find planning history from 2000 onwards you will need to use the property search option on the Planning and Building Online Register.
1974 - 2000
Records from 1974 - 2000 are also available from the Planning and Building Online Register. However records for this period may not have been fully checked for accuracy in terms of the mapped polygon or property address. Planning Services are currently in the process of working through these records but the scale of this project means that it could be some time before this is complete. Until further notice please treat the plotting sheets as the definitive record.
1948 - 1973
These records are presently not held in a digital format. You can only view these plotting sheets at our offices.
The modern planning system was created by the Town and Country Planning Act 1947 which came into force on 1 July 1948. Planning Services therefore hold no records prior to this date, if you are researching land use history before this time we recommend that you visit the Peterborough Library.
