Limitations of service

The online planning history, including the enforcement notices register, 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

Newark and Sherwood District Council accepts no responsibility for any errors or omissions in the planning history information obtained using the online application website. 

The information displayed within the site does not constitute a formal notification of a planning decision to applicants/agents and, as such, any actions taken as a result of information displayed on the site are undertaken entirely at the viewer's own risk.

Plans and documents can currently be viewed for planning applications submitted from April 2005.

Documents for all newly-validated applications will be online within five working days of receipt of a valid application and at the start of the consultation period.

The website may not represent the full register, therefore please contact us to confirm all details are correct. 

You can search appeal details for applications where an appeal has been lodged and a decision issued.  Information including status, decision and documents may be available to view.

As part of works undertaken to transfer data from our previous website to the current Public Access website, a default date of 1 March 2013 was used within the date published field for all documents received prior to this date. If you require the correct date of receipt, please open the document for the date stamp. Furthermore, the date listed under this heading for documents received after 1 March 2013 is the date the planning team actually received the document.

The enforcement register contains those notices served from 2012 onwards. Should you require details of notices served prior to 2012 please contact us. We continue to review those notices served prior to 2012, therefore a small number may be available online.

If you cannot find the details of an application, please contact us.

Building control information is not available on the website. If you require further information regarding building control please contact East Midlands Building Consultancy.
