Limitations of Service

This service is being developed and some features are incomplete at the present time:

  • Documents and plans submitted with an application can normally be viewed within 24 hours of an application being validated. If none are displayed, you may wish to try the following day. Alternatively you can view the application and associated documents at planning reception at your local planning office during normal office hours.
  • Full details of planning applications received after 1 November 1993 are currently available and limited details for applications submitted between 1 April 1974 and 31 October 1993. Please contact the Planning Service on 01274 434605 or complete the online request form to arrange to view details of these applications.
  • Associated documents and plans are available for applications received after 1 January 1997 and certain applications received in 1996. Please contact the Planning Service on 01274 434605 or complete the online request form to arrange to view details of these applications received prior to this date.
  • Documents and plans submitted with an application can normally be viewed within 24 hours of an application being validated. If none are displayed, you may wish to try the following day. Alternatively you can view the application and associated documents at planning reception at your local planning office during normal office hours.
  • The “View Map” search facility only reveals planning applications received after 1 June 2003. If you wish to search for an application submitted prior to this date please use the “Application Search” facility.
  • Planning constraint information is currently not available to view via our online planning system. The Council is committed to making the remaining information available as soon as possible. In the meantime please contact your local planning office for details of any possible constraints.
  • Most files in the 'Documents' section for each application are Adobe Acrobat pdf files. Other files may be saved in a variety of Microsoft Office formats, e.g. word documents as '.doc' and emails as '.msg'. If you do not have software that is capable of reading these files, please try searching on the internet. For example, searching for 'msg reader' will find software that can read emails saved on the system. Bradford Council can not be held responsible for any such software installed on your computer.
  • Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the data, the planning information within the site is at present incomplete and must not be used as a substitute for carrying out a formal ‘Land Charge Search’. No responsibility will be taken for any errors or omissions in the planning history information obtained from the system.

The information contained within our online planning system does not constitute in any way a formal notification of a planning decision, and as such any actions undertaken as a result of information displayed on the site are undertaken entirely at the viewer’s own risk.

Further copies must not be made without the prior permission of the copyright owner.

If you make a comment on a planning application, please be aware that it will be made available for public viewing and should not contain any information that may be deemed offensive, or potentially offensive. The Council will not accept responsibility for any comments made by contributors to planning applications, and reserves the right to remove comments that it believes may cause offence.
