Contact Planning

Until further notice due to the Coronavirus we are unable to accept PAPER planning applications, comments on planning applications, compliance complaints or forms relating to the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). Planning applications must be made electronically via the planning portal www.planningportal.co.uk Comments on planning applications must be made on the online comment facility https://www.arun.gov.uk/weekly-lists, compliance complaints must be made on the online form https://www.arun.gov.uk/planning-compliance and the submission of CIL forms (with the exception of CIL Form 1 which must be submitted with the planning application itself) must be sent to CIL@arun.gov.uk.

We are working towards setting up a Development Control Committee for 27 May 2020 to determine planning applications in the normal way. The Government are setting out legislation on how this should be achieved. The Government sent a letter to local councils recently, which is attached here: Chief Planners Newsletter - March 2020.pdf [pdf] 135KB . There is currently no change to the Council’s scheme of delegation and applications will still need to be determined at a Committee meeting if necessary. It is highly likely that this meeting (and future meetings) will be held remotely or with a reduced number of members and details will be published when they have been agreed.
