Planning Application Alerts: A Must-Have Tool for Developers


Stay ahead of the game and avoid unpleasant surprises with Nimbus' newest feature: Planning Application Alerts. 

What Are Planning Alerts?

Planning alerts provide an easy and convenient way to monitor all planning applications made within a certain radius of your location. By setting up an alert within Nimbus, you can quickly identify any proposed developments or modifications being made on sites in your chosen area.

Once you have created a planning alert, Nimbus will automatically search through all planning applications made in the designated area and send you a notification when there is a change, whether it be an approval, a refusal or a modification.

Why Planning Alerts Are A Game-Changer

Property developers and investors can greatly benefit from planning application alerts. If you are interested in purchasing a property, you can use planning alerts to keep track of any changes that could impact your plans. For instance, if an application is refused, you may have a better chance of acquiring the property if the current plan is rejected by planners. On the other hand, if an application is approved, it may signal a growth opportunity for your investment.

If you already own a property, you can use planning alerts to monitor any potential competition in the area. For example, if a new store is set to open next door, you can adjust your strategy accordingly.


Local Knowledge, Nationally 🗺

With our planning application alerts, you can be the first to know if there is any change in the status of an application, such as when an application is approved, rejected or granted permission on appeal. You can also keep track of your own portfolio and understand any competitive planning applications submitted within a radius of your site to ensure you are aware of any potential threats.

You can set alerts to be notified of any new applications that are submitted within a certain area. By setting up alerts to notify you when planning applications are submitted, you can track them through the entire process until they’re granted or rejected. 

In addition to setting up alerts on your own sites, you can also create alerts on any site of interest, whether you own it or not. Planning application alerts are a powerful tool for property developers and investors, enabling them to stay informed and make more informed decisions.
