Local planning applications finder

We now have a tool which lets you find recent planning applications near any property in the Arun district. The service is available below. Please note that the planning finder may not show a complete list as there will always be a delay between the application being received and it being accepted as a valid planning application and plotted onto the mapping layer. You must always check the published planning weekly lists on our web site or in the West Sussex Gazette. Arun District Council makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of information held on this planning finder but cannot accept responsibility for and disclaims all responsibility for any loss or damage which may arise from the use of the information provided.
