Planning search and alerts

Nimbus offers a comprehensive range of tools to find sites with or without planning and the ability to be alerted to any applications of interest in your target areas.


How it works

Our planning search and alert tool allow you to quickly identify opportunities with or without planning as soon as they are submitted.

  • Search for relevant applications.
  • Save your search and be alerted when new applications are submitted or updated.
  • Export your searches for further analysis.

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.
