Orange County takes steps to streamline permitting process

ORANGE COUNTY (June 27, 2018) -- 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) to streamline our permitting and inspection processes. The goal is to establish a system that is much more user-friendly, transparent and efficient and offers improved functionality.

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 two 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 provide periodic updates 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. A new LMCPS Project webpage is under construction at, which outlines the benefits of the new system, provides a continuously updated time line for implementation, and details the project history. Keep checking this webpage for updates.

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