Property History Searches

Important Information

Due to the current outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) some of our services have been affected.  For further advice and guidance please read our Information Guide for Service Users

We thank you for your patience during this time.

What is it?

Details of Planning Applications are available Online from 1 January 1999. Appeal data is also available from 1 January 2001 and Enforcement data from 1 January 2006.

Plans and other documents are available for planning applications received on or after 1 January 2007.

If you are unable to find what you are looking for online, you can apply for a Planning Search or apply for a copy of a planning decision notice.

How do I apply?

Application for a Planning Search for a copy of a planning decision notice must be made by submitting a completed application form together with a fee of £101 for a planning search or £80 for a copy of a planning decision notice, for each postal address to be searched.

It should be noted that the £101 fee only covers the cost of searching for the information; there is no guarantee that documentation will be available.

There is an additional variable fee if copies of plans are required, the amount of which depends upon the size and number of copies required; when this has been established an indicative cost can be provided.

The time taken to search for documentation depends on the quality of the information supplied, but we aim to respond to:

  • 90% of Domestic property applications within 5 working days.
  • 90% of Non-domestic Property applications within 8 working days.

Should you have any queries regarding the process please contact our admin team on 0141 287 8555.
