Sometimes you want to know about planning applications made in a general area – like if you’re considering investing there.
Other times you have a particular site of interest – and you want to keep an eye on that site and the surrounding area for any planning applications. Maybe it’s a site you’re thinking of buying. Or maybe it’s one owned by a competitor and you want to keep an eye on them…
As for tracking them, that’s really simple.
How to see your site-specific planning alerts:
Click on “Dashboard” in the menu at the top left side of the screen
Click on Planning alerts at the top of the dashboard menu which will take you here:
By default, the list will be “Planning search alerts” – the standard alerts (normally set up in the map mode).
For site-specific alerts click on “Sites with alerts” to the right
Click on a site to view all planning alerts set up for that site
Once alerts for that site are shown, click on the alert you’re interested in and view the alert results
Not seeing any results?
If there are no results it’s probably because you haven’t got any site-specific planning alerts set up.
Remember: they’re different to standard planning alerts.
