At present, the data which the site draws on is incomplete. Therefore public access must not be used as a substitute for carrying out a formal 'Local Land Charge Search'.
No responsibility will be taken for any errors or omissions in the planning history information obtained from public access. Similarly, the information contained within public access does not in any way constitute a formal notification of a planning decision, and as such any actions taken as a result of information displayed on the site are undertaken entirely at the viewer's own risk.
The online planning history contained within the site at present is incomplete and should not be relied upon in connection with a property transaction. Anyone wishing to obtain planning information for this purpose is advised to carry out a local land charges search through the Council's Local Land Charges Section or the National Land Information Service (NLIS) using one the official licensed channels.
If information is not available you may wish to try again a few days later, or alternatively you will be able to view the planning application information in addition to the plans and associated documents at the Council Offices during normal office hours. South Staffordshire Council reserves the right to remove or not display certain planning application information for confidentiality or other reasons.
This service does not currently provide access to documentation such as copies of application forms, site plans, drawings and other relevant papers. This capability will be provided in the future, as the service is developed further. In the meantime, please contact the Council Offices during normal office hours for details of associated documents.
