Best Practices for Keyword Search:

  • Use whole words to avoid partial matches.

  • Add filters to narrow down your search.

Certain documents may include a keyword regardless of the project's classification. For example, you'll find 'demolition' within all planning applications. Be a search pro by adding filters like Case or Project Type to refine your results further. Log in to try it out.
