Whilst every effort has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the data, the planning information contained within the site is incomplete and must not be used for carrying out a formal "Local Land Charges Search". It also cannot be relied upon to constitute a full planning history for a site. No responsibility will be taken for any errors or omissions in planning information obtained and no liability is accepted for loss or damage arising from the use of planning information obtained from this site whether foreseeable or otherwise. Similarly, the information contained does not constitute in any way a formal notification of a planning decision, and as such any actions taken as a result of information displayed on the site are undertaken entirely at the user's own risk.
Please note that Section 47 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 protects plans, drawings and material submitted to us for the purpose of obtaining planning permission.
