View and comment on a planning application 

Full documentation associated with planning applications from 2010 onwards should be available to view on our website.

Our online public access for planning system allows you to:·

  • Search and view details about planning, tree works and building control applications
  • Comment on planning and tree work applications
  • View a weekly list of all the planning and tree work applications from a specific period.
  • Save searches, track applications and receive email alerts – you will need to register for this service.

New applications, once validated are normally available online within 10 working days of receipt of application.  However these times can fluctuate due to staff resources and periods of receiving high volumes of applications.

If you require documentation that is not currently available on our public access system please email planning@rutland.gov.uk quoting the reference number e.g. YYYY/0001/FUL, the property address and the document type. 

Please note in order for us to comply with GDPR regulations all documentation will need to be checked and any personal information redacted before we can publish the documents.  

Due to the processes involved to ensure that we are data compliant we are unable to facilitate any walk-in requests to the Council Offices for documentation that is not available on our website. 

Please therefore allow up to 20 working days. If you only require one specific document e.g. a drawing or a decision notice please let us know as this will speed up the process. 

Please note that public Computers are available to use at The Council Offices and at Oakham, Ketton, Ryhall and Uppingham libraries to view applications and documents (when available)
