Keeping up to date with Planning Applications

There is a wide range of ways in which you can keep up to date with planning applications and we encourage you to use our services.

From 1st November 2020 we made changes on the notification of planning applications. For more information see Update on how we notify on Planning Applications page.

Weekly List of new planning applications – Each week we publish a list of all planning applications that have been validated in the last week. You can view this list on the weekly list page.

Subscribe for email alert updates on planning applications – The alert service provides updates when new information is added to an application.  The alerts can also help you to be notified of when the decision on the application is issued. Registration for updates is free with your own email account. Subscribe to alerts by following the following steps.

  1. Go to planning.wealden.gov.uk
  2. Accept the disclaimer
  3. Enter the application number in the search box
  4. Click on the application number
  5. Click on the box ‘Subscribe’
  6. Enter your name and email address 
  7. Click Subscribe

Following these steps means you will now receive emails alerts when the status of the application changes and/or new documents are added to this application.

To unsubscribe:

  1. Go to planning.wealden.gov.uk
  2. Accept the Disclaimer
  3. Enter the planning application number in the search box
  4. If the system already has you logged in, click on the unsubscribe button (this will then stop the email alerts)
  5. If only the Subscribe button is displayed, click on this button and enter the name and email address which was used originally to set up this part of the system
  6. Click on unsubscribe to stop the email alerts
  7. Click on the sign out button.

Adverts for planning applications in weekly papers – Each week the council advertises applications we are required to do so by law in local papers. Further information and links to the latest advertisements can be viewed on the Planning Application Advertisements page.

My Alerts – Subscribe to Wealden’s ‘My Alerts’ to receive weekly updates for various topics including new planning applications within a pre-defined area. Please note this will only show three applications in the area you have chosen and may not necessarily be the ones closest to you.

We do not deal with planning applications in the South Downs National Park area. Visit the Park Authority planning applications web pages.
