Search the Online Register
Our online register allows you to check the progress and view a list of current and determined planning applications. The online register contains details of planning applications received since 1990 including drawings and other material submitted to the local authority along with officer reports and decisions which are available to download. Only decision notices are available on applications submitted prior to 1990. Our online register also allows you to find details of appeals since 1995.
Enforcement Notices relating to a particular property are not available online, but these will be in due course. Until these are available online, please submit any requests for this information to Planning@Cherwell-DC.gov.uk. As part of your request, please provide the property address being searched.
