Accuracy of information 

While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of data, the planning information contained in the site is at present incomplete and must not be used as a substitute for carrying out a formal land charge search. This includes details of historic applications and constraints on a particular site.

Plans are frequently amended. If you print off a document, there may be a newer version available at a later date.
