How to create a planning alert:

Step 1: Go to the area you're interested in on the map.

  • All searches are limited to the visible area on the map. Zoom out to include more areas.

Step 2: Select the Planning Layer.

  • In the planning layer you can get an overview of the planning activity in any area. Larger dots represent larger projects and darker (red) dots represent more recent applications.


Step 3:
Click on the Planning Search tab on the left.

  • The Planning Search feature is a powerful tool in itself. To learn how to do a planning search for past applications, click here.


Step 4: Type in filter keywords in the search bar or select from the popular keywords.

  • This will filter out all the applications that are not of interest to you. In the above example, I have filtered out for Residential, Approved applications for projects with more than 20 homes in Sutton.

Step 5: Click 'Create Alert'

Step 6: Name your alert


Step 7:
Outline the area on the map that you wish to set the alert for. Then click Subscribe.

That's it! you've set the alert. Planning alerts will be sent to the registered email of the account holder. You can go to the dashboard to manage your planning alerts.

To change the frequency of the alert go to the dashboard, then click on the planning tab and click 'change'.
