Applications, Comments and Decisions
You can review a summary of each representation made on planning applications and view some of the planning history for properties and related development constraints.
You can find information about planning applications, including application forms, plans and decisions in our dedicated planning search facility.
Want to comment or follow an application?
If you would like to make a comment on a planning application or follow its progress you will need to register to receive a Planning Search log in and password.

Commenting on a planning application
Comments submitted on line will not be published until the content has been checked. This may take several days due to the number of comments received.
Any comments made in response to applications should address the planning merits of the application.
The council will not post comments submitted anonymously and reserves the right not to post comments received which it considers contains libelous, discriminatory or otherwise offensive comments. Such comments will not be taken into account in assessing planning or related applications and will be returned to the author. The council dissociates itself from any comments made of a libelous, discriminatory or otherwise offensive nature.
Should you prefer not to make your comments on-line they can be emailed to the Consultations team or posted to the Council Offices in Shepton Mallet. Please ensure you quote the reference number. Comments should not be sent directly to the case officer.
Comments submitted online or by email will be acknowledged and displayed online in full. Comments received by post will not be acknowledged and a summary of these comments will appear on-line.
You have 21 days to comment on planning applications. A decision could be made at any time after the consultation period ends so comments received after this deadline may not be taken into account.
