Do the following
In the online permit information service, you can find pending cases and decisions that have been made. More detailed instructions on the use are provided in the service.
You can search by the stage of handling, for example pending, notified or already resolved cases. You can also limit the search to cover a certain period of time, e.g. applications received after 1 January 2016. The easiest way to find a specific case is to search by the name of the case or the applicant or a part thereof. You can also limit the search to cover the cases in a certain municipality.
The cases that match the search criteria are shown as a list. You can further narrow down these search results by using the search row at the top of the list. The link “Open” in the last colon of a row opens a description page showing more information. For example, the decision, notification or application documents regarding a case can be downloaded from the link “Open” (Avaa/Öppna) that corresponds to the case in question.

The service can be accessed freely and no registration is needed.
