Planning Applications

South Cambridge District Council and Cambridge City Council are moving towards a joint digital platform. As part of the joint digital platform we will be implementing a new planning application search system, along with changing our branding to include our Greater Cambridge Shared Planning logo.

These changes will start to take place from the 28th January as we start to migrate data into the new search system. It is anticipated that the work will be completed by the 18th February. From the 3rd February all new planning applications will be published into the new search system and we will provide you with a link of how to search for these in our neighbour notification letters. Prior to the 3rd February, you will still be able to access current live applications via the current planning system. From the 18th February all applications will be accessible via the new search system and the old search system will no longer be in use. From this date you will need to update your favourites/bookmarks to direct you to the new pages.

Date Range Search Fields

Use the calendar icons or enter the required date range - e.g. 30/04/2009 to 31/07/2010






The search will provide a range of information on current and decided applications since 1948. This includes a brief description of the development, reference number, decision and the date of decision. More recent applications show the name and telephone number of who is dealing with the application.

It should be remembered that no guarantee can be made as to the accuracy of results that are returned. We welcome any comments you may have on any aspect of the system.

The display of search results are presented in a collection of pages, the number of which depends on the number of results your search produces and is limited to no more than 500. Each page displays 10 results and each page number allows you to browse the next results.
