We’re building a new website for East Devon and want to know what you think.

New Planning Applications Online service

Planning has a new cutting edge webpage to view applications online.  It is user friendly with lots of new features:

  • Simple Search –  by using the application number or part of the address or postcode to search.
  • Advanced Search – allows you to use multiple search categories selected via drop down boxes for example by: Ward, Parish, dates valid or date decision issued.
  • Weekly Lists – Search by week by week of all applications; validated or decided.
  • Map Search – Search by using the map and zooming in on property.

All these searches can be saved, with the added bonus that you can set them up to alert you by email when a new application in your search criteria is validated.

Tracking – Once you have found the application you are interested in, you can set  the ‘tracking’ feature, which will automatically email you when the application has had additional representations or consultee comments added or, notification of going to committee or the decision has been issued.

Due to mapping issues outside our control, saved map searches will not email a notification when a new application is submitted within your search area.  However, you can re-run these searches at any time by going into “My Profile” and selecting “Saved Searches”.  

There is also a minor problem, again beyond our control, the map search screen is not working when you select “Show Me Properties”

Both these issues are being looked at and will be resolved very shortly by our suppliers.  If you spot any other issues please let us know by using the online enquiry form.
