These are legal agreements that are tied to building permits and often cover things such as affordable housing, open spaces, education, etc. These include Section 278 agreements (a legal agreement between the County Council and a developer to make modifications or improvements to the highway) and Section 38 agreements (a legal agreement between the County Council and a developer for the adoption of a motorway). Please, make sure you have the right number of digits when you search the system, including all required zeros. If you have a reference number with a 9/ at the beginning, for example 9/78/00942/FUL, put the 9/ out of the search. Please note that if you have a pop-up blocker on your computer, you must allow the site to open pop-ups so that documents can be opened. See current or past planning requests online. For example, a piece of land now called 2 Hill Crescent may have been subject to building permit at land off West Road. The application will therefore not be displayed if you search for the current address of the property. These can be requested via email to Lancashire County Council under S38andS278copies@lancashire.gov.uk If you are trying to find the initial building permit for the date of construction of a property, the application address will likely be different from what is known today. . . .
