Post 1997 Planning Applications


This dataset has been collated, classified and geo-coded by Landmark and comprises of applications for planning permission submitted to local authorities throughout Great Britain via local authority weekly planning lists.

  • The data includes large, small and minor applications which are split on the basis of estimated project value. Small applications have a value of less than £100,000.
  • Minor applications cover very small works, for example conservatories, car ports and signs.

Decisions are tracked for large applications but information may not be available for older applications dated before October 2006.

In addition to formal planning applications this data set also includes records of potential projects gathered from trade publications, tender requests and other available sources*.

There is a processing delay of approximately six weeks between applications being lodged with the local authority and the information being available within the data set.

This data is best suited for use within GIS software

*Such records may be speculative and usually have very little detail and may or may not require planning permission should the project proceed.
