You must register and login to our planning and licensing records system if you wish to comment on an application or be sent email updates about its progress. The system uses its own login accounts – you cannot login using your Thurrock Council 'My Account'.

By logging-in, you give consent for your comments to be made visible on the public record, as required by law.

For security reasons, you will be logged-out automatically after several minutes if you do not submit a comment or follow a link. To avoid losing unsaved work, you may prefer to take time drafting your comments on a separate document before copying them into the system.

Copyright notice: plans, drawings and materials submitted to us are protected by law.
You may only copy these plans, drawings or materials for consultation purposes, or to compare current applications with previous schemes, or to check whether developments have been completed in accordance with approved plans. Further copies must not be made without the prior permission of the copyright owner. By using the link above to search planning records, or accessing the records by any other means, you are agreeing to this copyright.
