Essential planning system maintenance from Monday

Essential planning system maintenance


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.
