Online planning register and decision notices
You can use the online planning register to view and comment on current planning applications and documents. The register contains planning application records from 1948, but most application documents are only available online from 2006.
We recommend you use a desktop computer to register to use our online service. Some Apple devices (iPhone and iPad) may not allow you to register. If you experience problems, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will create an account for you. Once you have registered, you can use any device to submit comments.
The register has many different search options, as well as a map. You can see the progress of an application, submit your comments and set up email alerts for applications or locations you're interested in.
To do this you will need to register, which is separate from an Enfield Connected account. The planning case officer can be identified on the register's 'further information' tab.
All comments are held on our internal electronic file. They can't currently be viewed online. You can arrange to view comments made by contacting the planning officer at email@example.com.
The online user guide (PDF, 156.27 KB) can help with any other questions you may have.
For a list of new planning applications, decisions made and any appeals, see below:
Only valid planning applications are published on the online planning register. If the planning fee isn't paid, or information is missing, the registration process will not start. If an application is invalid, an email will be sent to the applicant or the agent, within five working days of receipt.
Once an application has been acknowledged as valid, it will be published on the online planning register. The publicity expiry date will indicate when a proposal is under consideration.
All application documents can be viewed, including the decision notice and planning officer's report, once issued.
If you believe your planning application should be on the register, check with your agent. If you do not have an agent working for you, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best way to comment on an application is online as this is automatically received by the planning officer and recorded in our system. As the web form will time out after 20 minutes and you will lose any comments that have not been submitted, our advice is to draft your comments in another programme, such as notepad or MS Word, and then copy and paste your comments to the web form.
You can request email confirmation when you submit your comments. If you experience problems submitting your comments this way, you can send them by email to email@example.com.
Open planning process
We are required to publish submitted applications so interested third parties can review proposed works and development and submit their comments. This supports the open planning process.
The online application service restricts personal data on the application from being published. We are not responsible for builders or trade professionals who may contact applicants because of required information on the application form that is published.
Viewing planning application files
We aim to publish planning application information online. You can use our scan on demand service for all applications before 2007. We charge £26.30 (including VAT) for this service. Complete the planning register inspection form 2022 (PDF, 100.87 KB) and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
