Register of planning decision notices

Welcome to Tower Hamlets online planning records service. This service enables interested parties to view and comment on planning applications and provides access to details of planning applications received by the council since the beginning of 2000. The information relating to the applications is updated daily. If you cannot access the online planning register, you can always come into the office to view ongoing applications.

You can view the details of particular individual planning applications including submitted forms, drawings and, where available, decision notices.  You can also submit online comments on planning proposals via our mailbox facility and set up a user account which will enable you to save a list of applications you are interested in. For decided cases, the decision may be subject to an appeal. To check and see details of any appeal, use the planning appeals submission link below.

You can use our interactive online mapping service to view the locations of current and decided planning applications. Clicking on the map will display details of applications relating to that location and a link to each applications details page on the online planning register.

The following are links to the online planning register and associated online information.

You can also view evidence, submit comments and check the progress of an appeal online via the planning portal.


The applications and ancillary documents received by the council are from the applicant and do not represent the views of the council or any judgement on the merits of the application which will remain to be decided by the council’s Planning Committee.
