Planning NI

PUBLIC NOTICE: A new planning portal will be launched on 5 December 2022 for 10 of the 11 councils* in NI and the Department for Infrastructure (DfI). As part of the preparations for this change, no updates will be made to the existing system from 18th November 2022 onwards. Therefore there will be no further updates to this download facility. A replacement online data extract tool is being developed and will be available in early 2023. We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of this change. In the meantime, customers can contact the individual Councils or Department directly should they wish to obtain data about the planning applications they have received or decided.

Contact details are available on nidirect at

For further information on the launch of the new portal, please visit

* Please note, Mid Ulster District Council provides its own online service for anyone wishing to submit or comment on a planning application in the Mid Ulster area. For more information, please go to the Mid Ulster District Council website
