Hi,

your local council will have lists online of every planning application that has been submitted that week, it may be pretty hard to find on their web site but every council has one.
you can get all the info you need, type of job ie extention to house or new factory . new and adress of applicant and agent if they are using one, and usually drawings. and if they have been approved or are just pending.
make yourself a letter of introduction explaining what you do and the relevant qualifications you have ie timeserved, years experiance, part p and make it generic so that you print a load then send them 2nd class to all the people that are doing jobs that interest you.

Chasing planning applications is a waste of time...most times.
Most small companies take years and years to build a customer base, everybody know's an electrician for domestic use, if they don't they will go on reccomendation from someone who 'knows someone' It is exponential, sometimes in the future with a good customer base you will 'bought out' if you are lucky.

If new, go for commercial contracts expect to jump thru hoops it is very very cut-throat. But along side do domestic stuff, over the years you should be able to develop a good customer base. If you are good and accommodating eventually you will get work with hardly any advertising at all.
