Planning and building control

Welcome to our online planning section. Here you can search for and download plans and proposals for development across the borough - from new shops to house extensions.

Local Land Charges Register - Please note that from 6 February 2020 onwards, the council will no longer provide a Local Land Charge Personal Search service or a search of the Local Land Charges Register (LLC1). The Local Land Charges Register will be migrated to HM Land Registry. You will be able to access a new digital service through your portal account, business gateway and on the HM Land Registry pages on GOV.UK.  Watford Council will continue to provide replies to Con29 enquiries.
