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 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 using our Local Authority search.


Find your Local Planning Authority


Please note: The Planning Portal is an online application service based in Bristol. We are not part of any council and do not have a planning department so cannot offer planning advice. Please contact your Local Planning Authority, sometimes known as a council, for this information.
