  • view applications for permission/consent
  • monitor the progress of existing applications
  • submit comments about applications (note that these will be published)
  • view a weekly list of applications received and validated

You can object to a licensing application separately.

Copyright Notice

Plans, drawings and material submitted to the council are protected by the Copyright Act (Section 47, 1988 Act). You may only download or print material for consultation purposes. Further copies must not be made without the prior permission of the copyright owner (the applicant/ agent/ architect). You may, however, make copies of decision notices and reports provided the copies are not altered in any way.

You cannot make copies of any Ordnance Survey (OS) plans on the online system and submit these with a planning application. To do so would breach our OS licence.

Limitations of the service

The database includes only those records which Cheltenham Borough Council hold on computer. It is not a complete database of all information held by the council.

You should not rely on information from this site as an alternative to traditional searches where completeness of information is essential. While we take great care to ensure that the information provided on this site is accurate, we cannot accept any liability or responsibility should you rely on the information provided and ultimately find it to have been incorrect or incomplete.

If you have any reason to suspect that the information is incorrect, please contact us immediately so that we can investigate and make any corrections as soon as possible.

There will be a period after 10pm each evening where the service will be unavailable due to daily maintenance.
