Looking at Plans
First Steps Historical Analysis Tools

If you can identify the original planning application, (or a subsequent enhancement application), Microfiche records of all Planning Applications are held at South Bucks District Council at ‘Capswood’, Oxford Road, Denham, Bucks UB9 4LH    01895 837200. The microfiche you want is indexed at SBDC by the same number and date in our planning database.

Once you establish that there is a plan, Original Plans are held at the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies, County Hall, Walton Street, Aylesbury, Bucks HP20 1UU. Telephone:  01296 382587. Book in advance. If you want a copy of one of the plans, you can download an application form in PDF format (36.4 kb). You will need to print this out and complete both pages, sending it with the appropriate fee to the Record Office. 

For residents in the Chiltern District Council area, the records of the Amersham Rural District Council are also in Aylesbury but these records are limited. There are Register Entries for Planning Applications but for example there are no original plans before 1920 and only selective plans after this date.

Your next useful step could be Census Information.
