Land searches

11 November 2016

We provide land searches for minerals and waste operations in Essex, including quarries, waste facilities and landfill sites within 250 metres of a specified area of land.


We will charge £30 for each land search request. As part of this cost we will confirm the proximity of the minerals or waste site to the area in question and provide any information we hold about the site.
Site details provided will vary depending on the age of the site, which effects the information we hold.
Statutory consultees (as per The Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure)(England) Order 2015) will not be charged for land searches.
Please email your land search enquiry to
Once you have contacted us, we will respond with details of the site in question and how to make a payment.
Please contact the Environment Agency or the relevant district, borough or city council for all other types of land enquiries.
