Current Planning Applications

Please note that we are currently experiencing very high volumes of work and this may have an impact on the time taken to respond to calls and emails.  If you cannot find the answer you are looking for on our website then if possible, please could you email any queries to the relevant Officer or email plservices@eastcambs.gov.uk, we will then endeavour to respond within 5 working days.  Please allow this time to lapse before making contact again.

In line with our Neighbour Notifications & Consultations Guidance Leaflet, the Planning Officer will not respond to neighbour responses but will ensure that any material planning concerns raised are addressed in the Officer’s Report.


You can view details of all registered planning applications on the Council's Public Access System. This system allows you to: 

  • View details about planning and tree work applications being considered by the Council;
  • Monitor the progress of live applications;
  • Submit comments/objections on live applications;
  • View decision notices & officer reports for determined applications;
  • View screening and scoping opinion requests (information only).

You can see what applications have been registered each week on our twitter feed @ECDCPlanning or by viewing the Weekly List via Public Access.

In order to view details of any application you will need to search using the either the application number or the address.

You can also register to be notified of applications within an area of your choice. More information on how to do this and how to use the public access system is available on our Public Access User Guide (pdf)
