 Orange County is nearing completion of implementing a new permit tracking/management software system, the goal of which is to establish a central permitting system where all County Departments utilize the same data thereby streamlining the permit and inspection(s) process for our customers.

At this time, this project is adhering to the following schedule:

CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT/TESTING: Between July 16, 2018 and August 31, 2018 staff will finalize design and testing of the system.

  1. TRAINING: During the month of September 2018, staff will be trained in using this new system. While not all staff will be training at the same time, there will be limited staff available to facilitate the review/processing of permits and perform field inspections. 

We encourage developers and contractors to plan accordingly for the anticipated reduction in staff availability during the month of September.

  1. GO-LIVE (i.e. begin use of the new software system):  The County anticipates the project will ‘go-live’ on Wednesday October 10, 2018 barring unforeseen delays.  Staff of Building Inspections, Current Planning, Environmental Health Division Onsite Water Protection Section Well & Septic (EH-OWP), and Erosion Control will observe the following schedule:

 The Orange County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) has made it a priority to replace our existing permitting/tracking/management software with a Land Management Central Permitting System (LMCPS) in which the involved Orange County Departments have equal access to all the data required to streamline our permitting and inspection processes.  The goal is to establish a system that is much more user-friendly, transparent, efficient, and has far broader functionality than the current one. 

Orange County Management is pleased to announce that the staff of the departments listed below is nearing completion of its work to develop this new Energov-based system, to replace our current PermitsPlus system, which has been in service for more than 15 years.  The LMCPS Project encompasses several integrated components of land development and permit management within Orange County, and will be utilized by the following County Departments and Divisions noted in bold:   

  • County Manager’s Office
  • County Attorney’s Office
  • Building Inspections
  • Current Planning
  • Environmental Health (Well and Septic Systems)
  • Erosion Control / Stormwater
  • Fire Marshal
  • Information Technologies
  • Solid Waste
  • Land Records / GIS 

Development of the new system has taken more than 2 years of work by various staff members.  At present, we estimate that the new software system will be operational in Fall 2018.

 Orange County will be providing periodic updates on this project to the general public in order to keep you informed of our progress, the latest developments, and what the new software system will mean to you.  This is the new LMCPS Project web page, which outlines the benefits of the new system, provides a continuously updated time line for implementation, and details the project history.  Keep checking this web page for updates!

Thank you for your patience while we work to better serve you.
