Planning applications

Nimbus offers a comprehensive range of tools to understand the planning activity on and around your target site and what the local trends and opportunities are in an area.


How it works

With data updated daily, our tools enables you to effortlessly see planning histories on and around a property.

  • A single click opens the info panel showing you all applications submitted on a title. 
  • Layer applications on the map around your target site to see other applications progressing in the area.
  • Use the planning search tools to see what others are doing to similar sites, who they are working with and what they are paying.
Planning search-2-1

Info panel

Clicking on any property from the map view opens the info panel, displaying the planning history on the title with all applications linked directly back  to the relevant page on the council's planning portal.

Planning search

Search for approved, refused or pending applications across any local authority. Refine your search with the unit number filter and include or exclude keywords so you only see the applications you are interested in or to see where others are finding success in your area.

Planning alerts

Set up alerts for your searches and be notified as soon as a new application is submitted or updated. With planning data updated daily, these alerts means you’ll never miss out on the very latest information.


Detailed reporting

Want to see see who is working with who, what they are paying and which consultants are getting results? All planning searches can be easily exported into a CSV file, with live links to each property, listing ownership, details of the applicant and the agent.
