Dear Philip,

I'm afraid your site may be broken, or I'm making a bit of a hash of using it.

I've set Application Type to "Change Of Use" and Date Application Received to between 01/07/2004 and 01/07/2009. This returns a pop-up saying that no results have been found.

Can you eiher confirm that this is correct, or can you supply the originally requested information? Also, I can't see a method for searching for applications involving a particular party, such as Starbucks.

Yours sincerely,

Matt White
