Planning Alerts is a free service that sends you email notices about planning applications near you.

This is easier than hunting through the council’s website as that information is not grouped by locality, so you have to hunt through the entire borough’s applications to find ones near you.

Planning Alerts works for many boroughs, currently including Sutton and Croydon, but not Merton.

If you use an RSS reader, this information is also available as an RSS feed.
