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.

We are currently experiencing technical issues with our online server so you may not be able to login or register on Public Access. We are working to resolve this matter as soon as we can and apologies for the inconvenience this may cause.  Should you experience this problem, please submit your comments in writing or by email with your details and the application number.

How to comment online

To ensure that your views are not misinterpreted, we can only accept comments in writing.

Your comments whether submitted online, via email or in a letter will become public documents and will be available for public inspection and published on our website. This will include your name and address; your e-mail address and telephone number and any signatures will remain private.  Comments should not contain any information that may be deemed offensive, or potentially offensive.

Comments taken into consideration

Due to volume of correspondence we receive on planning applications, we cannot enter into detailed correspondence or discussions with individual concerns raised. 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.
