Use Public Access to find planning applications, view them and make comments.
An application will normally be open for comment for a period of 21 days after neighbours have been notified of the application, or after a site/press notice has been issued.
Some works can be carried out without requiring planning permission, this is known as permitted development. The Planning Portal common projects section provides a general guide to common building works not requiring permission.
However, some people do fail to ask for the necessary permission before carrying out works or starting an activity. Others may receive planning permission but fail to act in compliance with the permission or some conditions that may have been imposed on the decision notice. The Planning Enforcement Service investigates these suspected breaches of planning control.
Before reporting a suspected breach you can check if an application has been made and what the conditions are on the decision notice using our Public Access system. If you don't find an application or suspect the applicant has not complied with those conditions you can report a suspected breach.
