How to view and filter planning permit information

Watch the video or follow the step-by-step instructions below to find out how to view and filter planning permit information (development applications) in Landchecker.

Planning permit information is notoriously challenging to access, as each local council has its own way of sharing and displaying this information. Landchecker brings all this permit information into one place making it significantly faster and easier to access.

1. Turn on the planning permit layer

Click on the clipboard icon in the menu on the left side of your screen. Select ‘Planning Permits’.

2. Hover over a property to view the planning permit information

The most recent permit is visualised with a traffic light system. Green for approved, orange for pending and red for rejected.

Hover over a property to view information on the permit. If there are historic permits on the property, you will see a link to View More.

3. Apply filters to find the relevant permit information

You can choose to filter the data by the date the permit application was received or the outcome date.

There are a number of different uses for this information depending on your industry. A Real Estate Agent may use this information to look for listings opportunities. An Architect or Town Planner may use the filters to look for planning permit precedents.
