Security, Data Protection and Online Documents

It is a principle of the planning process that it should be open and transparent. In accordance with national guidance on best practice, the council will try to make as much information as possible available via the online Public Access register.

In following the council's Data Protection Policy the following procedures are followed when publishing documents online.

As part of the planning process we publish many documents, and on occasion human error can occur. If you notice something on the site that causes you concern please email - please provide the application reference and document details and we will do our best to resolve the matter.

General Correspondence - Private Individuals

As representations on planning applications form part of the Statutory Register we will publish the sender's name and address but will endeavour to blank out personal signatures, email addresses, telephone and mobile numbers before documents are published online.


Applicants' names and addresses are published as these form part of the statutory planning register. We will endeavour to redact personal signatures, personal email addresses and personal telephone numbers before documents are published online.

Business Letters

We will redact signatures only.

Use of the online Public Access register for professional and historical research

The online planning applications and appeals contained within the site at present are cases received within the last two years. No responsibility will be taken for any errors or omissions in the planning history information obtained from Public Access.

Similarly the information contained within Public Access does not constitute in any way a formal notification of a planning decision, and as such any actions taken as a result of information displayed on the site are undertaken entirely at the viewer's own risk.

Planning applications that do not appear in Public Access are available to view at Bassetlaw District Council's Worksop office. Documents can be made available to view on request, turnaround time is subject to availability of resources.
