PLEASE NOTE: Essential maintenance is being carried out to the planning, building control and local land charges database for the week commencing 12 April 2021 through to 16 April 2021.

During this time there will be no public or staff access to any records held within this database, and it will not be possible to carry out any of the following tasks via the Arun website:

  • Research planning and building control history
  • View any planning applications, plans, agreements, tree preservation orders or competent persons data
  • Submit building control applications
  • Submit planning application comments
  • Report any planning compliance issues

If you have an urgent building control inspection during this period, you will need to know the exact reference number, site location, and nature of the works before making contact with building control. However, you are advised to book inspections before or after the week commencing 12 April 2021.

All other aspects of planning, building control and local land charges will be limited during this week and you are strongly advised to contact the individual departments before 12 April 2021 for specific restrictions during this time.

The publicity and consultation period for all planning applications that fall over this week will be extended by a further week to ensure no one is disadvantaged.


Application Tracker

This search facility is linked directly to Arun District Council's Planning and Building Control database. It contains historical records of Building Regulation applications since 1987. Commencement and Completion data is only available online from around 1998.  The history contained within the site at present is incomplete and must not be used as a substitute for carrying out a formal  Land Charge Search . No responsibility will be taken for any errors or omissions in the planning history information obtained from Public Access. Similarly, the information contained within Public Access does not constitute in any way a formal notification of a planning decision, and as such any actions taken as a result of information displayed on the site are undertaken entirely at the viewer’s own risk.  Please be aware that the records are only as up to date and as accurate as the information we have entered onto the data base. There will always be a delay between us receiving an application and it appearing on this web site. Care must be taken when searching for information as the system will only match your search criteria and the information may be held under a different description. In some cases it may be necessary to visit the office to ensure that you have the full site history.  Arun District Council makes every effort to maintain the accuracy of the information on this website but cannot accept responsibility for and disclaims all responsibility for any loss or damage which may arise from the use of the information provided.
