Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice, including help if you are struggling financially

Search and comment on planning applications

Service unavailable for North Dorset

Please note the North Dorset planning application system is currently unavailable. We are transferring data into a new planning system. Any consultation deadlines that will fall during this outage will be extended by to compensate.

This is the first part of a phased approach to pull together the six former district, borough and county councils planning functions together into one system.

See more details about this project.


Type/area of application

Update on advertising planning applications in the former North Dorset area and part of the former West Dorset area

We have been notified that the Blackmore Vale Magazine has suspended publication for a temporary period due to the Covid-19 situation. Any planning applications requiring press advertisements that would normally be advertised in the Blackmore Vale Magazine will be publicised in the Western Gazette instead from 24 April. This affects the former North Dorset area and part of the former West Dorset area only.

Planning history searches

If you are unable to find the application that you are searching for using the searches above, you can contact us with details of the site or application and we will search for it for you. Depending on the type of information you are asking for, there may be a fee of £50. Contact us by email to find out more.

Comments taken into consideration

We receive a large number of comments on planning applications. This means we cannot enter into detailed discussions with individual concerns raised.  Your comments should be based on material consideration. This will be taken into account when deciding a planning application or on an appeal against a planning decision.
