Permits in our new Land Management System (CC LMS) will have a dash in the fourth position of the permit number, for example PLD-2019-12345. Use the CC LMS Land Use permit search page to find these permits.

If your permit number looks like PLD2018-12345, it will be in our old system, Tidemark. Use the search form below. Enter your permit number and press the "Get Status" button to check permit status.

If you don't know your permit number, you can use Maps Online and these instructions to find it.

Check out the Tidemark to LMS Crosswalk to see how old permit types were integrated to new permit types.

Use our Tidemark to CC LMS Crosswalk to determine the corresponding permit types between the two systems.
