Important information relating to publication of personal data
In respect of any applications, representations, objections or other documents received by the Council that are published on this website from 6 August 2008, the Council will take reasonable steps to remove personal (but not business) telephone numbers and e-mail addresses, and signatures, before publication.
Planning applications have been edited in this way since May 2006, but other documents published before 6 August 2008 have not been. Please contact the Council's Assistant Data Protection Officer on 023 8028 5588 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish your signature, personal telephone number(s) to be removed from documents published before 6 August 2008 (or planning documents before May 2006).
NB All other planning application enquiries should be submitted in writing to:
New Forest District Council
or by email to Development Control
Planning applications over 10 years old will only have the decision notice and related documents and plans published on our website.
The pages in this section allow you to view details of planning applications including application forms, plans and supporting statements currently being considered by the Council and decision notices as well as some planning history.
"PLEASE NOTE that in very exceptional circumstances supporting documents may be too large to upload onto our web site in full. In these rare circumstances we will request that the applicant provides a summary document that can be scanned.
A note to this effect will also be added to the web site which will say where the full document can be viewed. Statutory consultees will be sent a cd of the document (where this is available) or a hard copy version."
Planning applications online is an online internet service that allows you to view planning applications being considered by the Council, submit comments on the application and view lists of received and decided applications.
By clicking the "documents" tab on each application you can view current planning application documents including application forms, plans, the case officers report and decision notices.
