Planning Application Boundaries on LandInsight

27th October 2022

Good news! We've launched planning application boundaries on LandInsight. 

This means you can now see the boundary for a specific application on the map, if it's available for that application.

Why are planning application boundaries useful? 

To put it simply, boundaries give you a fuller picture.

It means you can now clearly see the extent of a planning application and the area it impacts, if the boundary is available for that application. 

For example, if there's a large site that spans multiple parcels of land then the boundary will give you a clear indication as to the scope of the potential development. 


What data do we currently have?

We have boundary data for around 40,000 planning applications from across 50% of local planning authorities from September 1st 2022. Boundaries are available on an application by application basis and can be quickly identified by the 'boundary available' icon, as seen in the image below.

In the coming months, we'll be gradually increasing this to 5 years of historic boundaries for those same planning authorities, and that's not all. We're working hard to secure data for the remaining planning authorities and reach full boundary coverage, but we'll share more on that later. 


How do I access boundaries?

You'll be glad to know it's easy.

  • Open the planning application layer
  • View the planning application list
  • Select the application
  • Look for the 'boundary available' icon 
  • View the boundary on the map
