Our online planning system allows you to:
In addition, if you register online you can be notified of planning applications in your area by setting up your own preferences. This allows you to decide what type of information is provided and the frequency with which information is sent.
You can perform a wide range of searches including simple address or postcode-based searches or more advanced spatially oriented searches such as within an electoral ward or within 500 m of a specified location.
Alternatively, you can view our public planning map-based register (under development so data may be incomplete)
By using the council's website to access planning applications, plans and drawings you are undertaking to agree to the copyright notice terms.
Paper copies of all current applications can be viewed at the Customer First Centre at the Municipal Buildings, Corporation Street, Blackpool, during standard opening hours.
If you want to comment on, support or object to an application, you will find a link called 'make a public comment' when using the search facility above, however, before you do we suggest you view our 'Comment on a Planning Application' page.
