Not all documents may be available to view online for an application.  This is because documents can be received in many different formats and at different stages during the process. 

We aim to publish details of applications received on the Public Access website within 5 working days. 

The Public Access website will be updated soon after a decision is made for an application. Details of the application will comply with GDPR and our retention policy.
