About This Service

Surrey Heath's Planning history ranges from 2005 back to the early 1970s.

There are two ways to search Surrey Heath's Planning history. Both methods make use of the historic Planning History Record Cards dataset which has been converted from paper to digital format.

For now you can only see a summary of the planning history for a given property. In future you may be able to get detailed case files.

Notes on Content

The History Record Card dataset was created before the existence of computerised case management systems and the cards themselves were written by hand. They detail an address, a case number, a decision code and a date. The most common decision codes are as follows.

  • A - Approved
  • R - Refused
  • W - Withdrawn
  • D - Appeal Dismissed
  • Allowed at Appeal
