Applications for permission to develop land made initially under the Town and Country Planning Act, 1947, and Town and Country General Development Order, 1950, and later the Town and Country Planning Act, 1962, and the Town and Country Planning Development Order, 1963. Each application is accompanied by a building scrutiny sheet; an outline plan of the site (sometimes); and permission or refusal.

The following pre-1974 applications have been traced (information supplied by the City Planning Officer 16 Sept 1977):

15060 Withdrawn - no planning copy
15118 Withdrawn - no planning copy
17196 No planning notice issued
18947 Permitted Development - no planning copy
19598 Permitted Development - no planning copy
20544 Permitted Development - no planning copy
20820 No planning notice issued
22152 Permitted Development - no planning copy
25608 Withdrawn - no planning copy
25656 Permitted Development - no planning copy
26193 Permitted Development - no planning copy
26396 Withdrawn - no planning copy

Since Local Government reorganisation in 1974 Norfolk has been divided into numbered districts for the purpose of development control. (Norwich is district 4, Broadland district 5, and South Norfolk, district 7). The references given to the applications indicate the district, the year, the application number in that year, and the type of application: e.g. 4 / 74 / 0001 / F (District Year Number Type).

Numbers are shared by the City Engineers and Planning departments so material recorded as 'missing' may not have been dealt with by the Planning department.

Restrictions on Copying

The plans were deposited with Norwich City Council for planning purposes. Most were drawn by architects or by other private companies or individuals who retained the copyright. Changes to copyright legislation in 2014 mean that the Record Office can supply copies of planning application plans for non-commercial, private use and study. Copies for commercial use cannot be supplied without the consent of the copyright owner. Commercial use includes use in a new planning or building control application.

Copyright in 'artistic works' (including plans and architectural drawings) expires 70 years after the end of the calendar year of the author's death, the author normally being the person who drew the plans, unless he or she was working as an employee of a company, or under a contract which specified otherwise. Evidence would be needed that the architect or other originator had died (or ceased to exist) more than 70 years ago or a letter of permission produced from the originator or his or her successors.
