Application Searches - Other Criteria

Use this screen to:
  • search for planning applications received from 1st January 2000
  • view plans and documents for applications from July 2009
  • submit comments on current applications
If you want to see any particular application that is not online, please contact the appropriate Planning and Building Standards Area Office by telephone, email or letter and they will arrange to have the application sent to the office for you to view. You will be advised when the application is available for you. This will usually take two days to arrange.

Searching for an application

Carry out a simple search by entering the application number. If you do not know the number, then use other options including the applicant's name, the application address, proposal description (by using a 'key word'), date searches or a combination of these.

Click the Search button at the bottom of the page to display the results. Choose the application that you want to view. Plans and documents relating to the application are viewed using the View Related Documents link at the bottom of the details page for the application that you have selected.

Application reference numbers include a prefix which show which Planning and Building standards Area Office is dealing with the application:.

  • Cambuslang/Rutherglen - CR/14/0999
  • Clydesdale - CL/13/0999
  • East Kilbride - EK/14/0999
  • Hamilton - HM/13/0999

You can carry out wildcard searches using the character '%' in any of the search fields, so only partial information need be entered. For example, if you enter %Almada% in the 'Site Address' field, the results page will display all applications with 'Almada' in the address. This is useful if you do not know the exact property number of an address, but know the street where the development is taking place. This can be used in the same way with the other fields.

Please enter dates in the format DD-MM-YYYY (e.g.21-03-2008).
Postcodes should be entered with a space between the two sections (e.g. ML3 0AA).

Commenting on a planning application

Use the search below to find the application that you want to make comments on or objections to. Open it up to view. Under 'Application Progress Summary' you will see for example, 'Comments until 25-06-2014', with the appropriate date showing. If that date has not passed, you can access to an 'Add Comments Here' link which opens up a new screen, 'Comment on a Planning Application'. This lets you type in your details and any comments that you wish to make. You must make your comments within three weeks of the application being submitted. If you want to make comments and the 'Comments until xx-xx-xxxx' date has passed but the application has not yet been decided, please contact the officer to find out if comments can still be submitted in writing or by email.
Remember your comments are made public.
