If you are interested in a specific planning application you can use our Planning Application online search to check on how the application is progressing. We hold details of all planning applications since 1986 in a database.
You can also view planning applications online at the Main Reception in The Deane House, Taunton
You are entitled to make a comment in support of or in objection to an application. We will take all comments in to account in reaching our decision. Please see our guide How to comment on a planning application.
You can obtain a copy of a planning certificate online by using the search to find the relevant planning application. Once you have found the right application, simply select it and you will be given a list of available documents. You can download and print the planning certificate if a decision has been reached.
If you wish to view historic planning applications that do not have the information available online, you will need to provide a list of Planning Reference numbers you require. As some historic files will be stored off site there may be a delay and cost in retrieving these for you. In the first instance please email email@example.com with your telephone number and we will let you know how long this is likely to take. Please title your email 'PLANNING HISTORY FILE REQUEST'.
