The service continues to process planning and building control applications and enforcement requests. All planning officers will carry on working from home and you can contact them using their usual phone and email contact details.

However, some will be changing their work patterns due to their individual circumstances and may not be able to respond to you immediately. Any general planning queries should be directed to planning.applications@brighton-hove.gov.uk.

The Building Control team is currently experiencing a high level of staff sickness which may affect response times for site inspections. Customers can help us by providing as much advance notice as possible when a visit is required, as we may need to allocate the inspection to another surveyor.
