We charge a standard hourly fee of £100 for requests for site history details in connection with the sale, purchase or lease of a building or piece of land, details of conditions, their discharging and any other related information.

This will be calculated based upon 20 minutes of officer time per condition to be checked. 

For example, if you would like us to confirm the discharging of conditions on a permission that has 10 conditions (200 minutes of officer time) this will cost £400. 

There is a minimum charge of £100, this fee is non-refundable and must be paid before research is undertaken.

This is a non-statutory service provided by the council. If you would like us to check specific conditions of a planning permission rather than all of them, your enquiry must make this clear or the fee for our service will be based upon the number of conditions on the permission.   

Please email requests to planning@newport.gov.uk, payment will be required in advance. 

We aim to respond to all requests within 21 days of receipt.

It is the responsibility of the applicant or developer to ensure that they comply with conditions of any planning permission. 

On request, limited information from archived files dated between 1998-2008 may be made available to view online, subject to a charge based on anticipated officer time to upload such information and you will be advised of this cost in advance.

Prior to 1998, only decision notices are available. 

We will provide you with a list of the relevant conditions and whether or not we have received and agreed requests to partially or fully discharge them.

We will also advise whether there are any current enforcement notices applicable to the property. 

No site inspections will be undertaken, our response will be based entirely upon our publicly accessible electronic records.  

For copies of S106 agreements and enforcement notices email land.charges@newport.gov.uk

We endeavour to keep this information up to date, if you encounter any problems accessing information please contact a member of the development management team on (01633) 656656 or email planning@newport.gov.uk
