General Enquiries & FAQs

Below are links to some of the frequently asked questions (FAQs) we get in relation to planning within the South Downs National Park.

If you have any enquiries that are not addressed by the FAQs, please email planning@southdowns.gov.uk 

Please note that we are experiencing a temporary number of vacancies that is impacting some areas of our planning service at the South Downs National Park Authority. We are working actively to recruit new staff and are committed to filling all posts within the Planning Department.  We would be grateful for your understanding and patience during this time, as we may be unable to deal with all matters within normal specified timeframes.  As always, our goal is to deal with matters as efficiently as possible and we hope to be in a position to meet our normal specified timeframes within 4 to 5 months.  Many thanks.
