Teignbridge Planning Online Help
  





Introduction

This application provides access to the Teignbridge District Council Planning Register for planning applications and appeals from 1977 to the present. It should be noted that part of the district is within Dartmoor National Park which is itself a planning authority. As such, applications and appeals that fall within DNP will not appear on this site but can be found on the DNP planning site.
We try to ensure that all the information on this site is as accurate and as up to date as possible but should you find any errors please let us know via the 'Rate this Service' option at the bottom of each page.

Advanced Search
The Advanced search section is divided in to six parts:
•     Proposal
•     Application Type
•     Parish
•     Status
•     Valid Dates
•     Decision Dates
One or all of these criteria can be used to perform a search. Although, the more information you add, the more specific the search but this also leads to a greater chance of not returning anything.
Proposal - This is the description of the appeal or application case. Type in any part of the proposal. This is a fuzzy search, so it might be all you need to type in to find what you are looking for.
Application Type - A dropdown list of application types.
Parish - A dropdown list of parish locations within Teignbridge.
Status - You have three options here: All, Decided and Current.
     •      Decided cases are applications and appeals that have had a decision made on them.
     •      Current cases are applications and appeals that have not been decided yet.
Valid Dates - Looks for application and appeals received within a specified period.
Decision Dates - Looks for decisions made within a time period.
     •      To use the calendars, either type the date in to the text box in the format 31/12/2012.

Make a comment

Comments, both in support or objection, can be made via this form and will be considered along with all other material planning issues when deciding the application.
Under legislation we are required to allow 21 days for submission of comments following publicity of the application either by site notice, neighbour letter or newspaper advert.
Once the overall date for expiry of publicity (the latest of any of these periods) has ended then the application may be decided, but you are still free to comment during this time although you run the risk that the decision may be made before your comment is received.
If the 'Make a comment' button is greyed out there is no longer an opportunity to comment.
Further details regarding how to comment on planning applications can be found here.
