Search and track planning applications
Most planning matters are handled by the local councils (city, borough or district).
County councils are the planning authority for waste and minerals matters and their own development (known as Regulation 3).
If you need to check on planning applications for anything other than waste and minerals matters or our own developments (e.g., new schools) you will need to go to the local council involved:
- Cheltenham Borough Council
- Cotswold District Council
- Forest of Dean District Council
- Gloucester City Council
- Stroud District Council
- Tewkesbury Borough Council
Use our Public Access system to view planning applications for Minerals, Waste or Regulation 3 developments, submit comments or monitor the progress of an application. You can also:
