See or comment on planning applications
You can see what's planned in your area and follow the progress of an application.
How to see or comment on an application
To find an application you can search by address, postcode or map or look at applications by week or month.
To comment on a planning application you can use our public access system, which will update our system automatically and make them available for an officer.
Please note: currently your comments will not be displayed online (this may be subject to change) but will still be taken into consideration and will be summarised in reports completed by the case officer.

Tracking your progress
You can track the progress of an application, including information such as committee dates. You can also set up a Planning account to follow the progress of an application automatically or receive notifications of new applications (this is not the same as your main customer account).
Commenting by email or post
If you are commenting by email or post, ensure that you include the reference number of the application you are commenting on.
Register of planning applications
Public Access displays the register for all planning applications within the Cheshire West and Chester Council boundary since 1974. This includes applications determined by the legacy authorities Chester City Council, Ellesmere Port and Neston Council, Vale Royal Borough Council and Cheshire County Council. If you consider that there are some documents missing from the register please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will look into it.
We display information on enforcement and breach of condition notices that have been issued since 2001. The information includes details of the nature of the enforcement case and a copy of the notice is available to view online.
