Are there any limitations to the service?

The online planning history contained within the site may be incomplete. It is not intended, and must not be used, as a substitute for carrying out a formal Land Charge Search.

Security, data protection and online documents

It is a principle of the planning process that it should be open and transparent. In accordance with national guidance on best practice, the council will try to make as much information as possible available via the online register.

As part of the planning process we publish many documents online and we aim to ensure that errors do not occur. If you notice something on the site that causes you concerns please email - please provide the application reference and document details and we will do our best to resolve the matter.

Representations on planning applications form part of the Statutory Register.  All representations and consultation responses received on applications which were submitted to the Borough Council on or after 1 November 2014 will be displayed on the website, however, for applications submitted before this date we cannot guarantee that all comments will be displayed online.  You can view representations on the working file, along with applications that do not appear on this site, at Rushcliffe Community Contact Centre in West Bridgford, by prior arrangement only. We will not display personal details on the website including your address, telephone number or email address.
