Applications - View, Comment and Track Progress
We are nearing the completion of the Council's switchover to a new IT system for planning development control and appeals. The new system has a different reference numbering system and as a result of this it will no longer be possible to search using the old "BRW" numbers.
Recent applications have appeared with two numbers. If you wish to search for an application please follow the advice in the search screen and use the number that does NOT include "BRW". If you are searching for a case that only has BRW reference you can either convert this to the new format (see below) or carry out a search on the address which will reveal all applications on the property. We apologise for any inconvenience during the changeover; however the new system will introduce a number of features to improve the service that we can offer you in the future.
Converting "BRW" references. The majority of references are for "full" planning applications. The following example shows how to convert a "BRW" number for a full application to the new numbering system. Example - application BRW/425/2007 becomes 07/00425/FUL. The main reference number must include 5 digits with 0s being added before the BRW number.
Other types of application follow the same formula. In the most common types of application "FUL" is substituted by OUT for outline applications, RES for reserved matters, LB for listed building applications, TPO for applications related to preserved trees and ADV for applications for advertisement consent. If in doubt it is recommended that you use the address search facility.
