Frequently asked questions

How do I view progress on an application?

Once you submit your application it will be considered by the local planning authority. The Planning Portal does not have access to the application once it is submitted.

You will need to contact your local planning authority to check on the progress of an application. Many local authorities now let you track the progress of applications on their websites.

Your local authority’s contact details and website address can be found by searching on the Planning Portal.
