Limitations to the online planning register

The online planning history contained within the site may be incomplete. It is not intended, and must not be used, as a substitute for carrying out a formal land charge search.

Bracknell Forest Council accepts no responsibility for any errors or omissions in the planning history information and must not be used as a substitute for carrying out a formal land charges search.

Under normal circumstances the plans and documents associated with new planning applications can be viewed within 1 working day of receipt of a valid application.

If documents are not available you may wish to try later or alternatively you will be able to view the application and associated documents at the council’s Time Square office in Bracknell during office hours.
