North Dorset District Council planning application search
Search for a planning application
Quickly search for any planning application by entering an application number or partial address on the simple search, or narrow down the results returned on the advanced search tab.
Each valid planning application we receive is subject to a 24 day consultation period so that the views on the proposed development can be expressed by local communities and Statutory consultees. Letters to neighbours, site notices and press adverts all include the date by which comments should be received. This is usually 24 days after the letter was sent or the site notice displayed. We cannot make a decision on an application until the latest date publicised for receipt of comments has passed if there are differences in the dates published. The planning authority has no control over the publication dates within newspapers and site notices cannot always be erected immediately.
When you use our online planning system you agree to abide by copyright notice and acknowledge our online planning policy.

Your comments should be based on material consideration, this will be taken into account when deciding a planning application or on an appeal against a planning decision.
