Derby's COVID alert level is 'high' (tier 2) - check out the latest coronavirus guidance.
We have made some important changes to our personal search service with immediate effect. This is for a temporary period to enable all of our customers and staff to stay safe and protected during the current coronavirus pandemic.
We are sorry but we are temporarily unable to provide access to historical plotting sheets and decision notices at this time.
If you require us to compile data for CON29 questions, please email email@example.com with details of your request, making the appropriate payment online:
We are also unable to provide access to view records at the Council House under the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) 2004 during this temporary period.
You can submit an EIR request for information relating to a specific property or address to FOI@derby.gov.uk with a relevant plan. EIR requests normally take up to 20 working days to be processed.
Your patience and understanding during this unprecedented and difficult time is appreciated.
We encourage everyone to stay safe and follow the government advice.
A personal search is a search of the Local Land Charges Register. As well as viewing entries from the Local Land Charges Register, you can inspect the Council's statutory public registers.
It is not possible to answer all of the search enquiry form - known as CON29R - questions by only inspecting the public registers. We apply Rule 7 of the Local Land Charges Rules 1977, so you will need to look at the planning plotting sheets to help you decide which planning registers to look at. You can look at these during your appointment time.
Arrangements for access to data for the CON29 questions is contained in our document Information for Local Search Enquiries.
All personal search appointments are available at The Council House.
The 45 minute appointment slots are allocated on a 'first come, first served' basis between 8.45am and 11.45am, Monday to Friday.
Please contact us to make an appointment.
More information regarding personal searches is available in our personal search information note.
Our Schedule of Registers/Information for Local Search Enquiries contains access arrangements and fees for information relating to CON29 enquiries.
