TitleRegisters of Development and Building Regulations Applications
DescriptionRegisters compiled under the provisions of the Town and Country Planning Acts 1947 to 1968 or Town and Country General Development Orders 1950 to 1965.

The registers (up until Mar 1971) give the following information:

Number of application
Date of application
Description of development
Situation [address or location]
Name and address of applicant
Decision of Council
Date of decision of Council
Conditions imposed [if any]
Notice number and date
Plan number
Date and particulars of directions given under Act or Orders [if any]
Date and particulars of any decision of Minister of Housing and Local Government affecting the application.

Up to March 1971, the registers were titled 'Registers of Development Applications'. Thereafter they were titled 'Registers of Development and Building Regulations Applications'.

From Mar 1971, the registers give: by whom deposited, but not conditions imposed, notice prefix, instead of notice number and date of Building Regulations decision.

The statutory Registers of Development Applications listed here (Series Reference: CA773/2) differ slightly from the separate series of Registers of New Building Plans (Series Reference Reference: CA205), which are indexed by applicants' and owners' names, and include 'By whom deposited', and also record decisions as to Building Bye-laws.

Entries in registers CA773 written in blue ink indicate Full planning permission, whilst entries in red ink signify Outline consent.

Indexes retained [March 2005] by the Planning Department can refer readers to a particular register volume number and page; readers may then need to return to the Planning Department with the appropriate Notice number and date, or prefix.

Note: the dates of the registers relate to the date the planning application was received.

AccessConditionsRegisters of Development Applications, Jun 1948 - Dec 1974 (CA 773/2/1-47) were returned to the Planning Department in October 2011. Requests to access these items should made to Sheffield City Council's Development Services (Planning and Development) section, Howden House.

The Planning Department also holds scans of the later registers which were retained at Sheffield Archives as well as access to a searchable database of planning applications so it is often worth contacting the Planning Department in the first instance for inquiries relating to specific planning applications from 1948 onwards (especially if the precise date / planning application number is not known).
