For specific help about tracking and notifications, read the following guide:
Automated search processes, automated, application or APIs which are set up for automated searching will be blocked from accessing the website.
The service continues to be developed, but at the present time no constraint information and only some associated documents, plans and decision notices are available online. 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 are advised to carry out a local land charges search through the council's Land Charges Section or the National Land Information Service (NLIS) using one of the licensed channels.
No responsibility will be taken for any errors or omissions in the planning history information obtained from "Public Access".
Similarly, the information contained with "Public Access" does not constitute in any way 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.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council reserve the right to remove or not display certain planning application information for confidentiality or other reasons.
