Please note that duty officer advice is only provided between 9am and 1pm Monday to Friday.

View a planning application or decision

All planning applications, decisions and appeals are available to view online.


View online register of planning applications, appeals and decisions

Our Planning online register includes:

  • planning and estate management applications
  • drawings, photographs and documents accompanying a planning application
  • the officer's report for each decided application
  • Decision Notices, including any attached conditions or reasons for refusal
  • appeal decisions
  • Comments on applications where a decision has not been made.

Some planning applications are considered and decided by Hertfordshire County Council such as planning applications for minerals and waste development and applications related to county council services.

Unsure of an application's full address

Our Interactive Map can identify the application number of recent planning proposals by area. Once you've identified the application number the online database will provide you details of the application.

'Alert It' for new planning applications

UPDATE 29 February 2016 - Alert It has been taken offline due to ongoing problems and we apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.    All registered users of this service will be contacted and we are now working towards a new solution to send email notifications of planning applications.

Local access to computers and advice

Council offices

We have computers at our council offices which you can access to view plans (please note we no longer store paper copies of plans). A duty officer is also on hand to give advice 0900 - 1300 hours Monday to Friday.

You can also access computers at parish and town councils. However they are unable to give you advice.
