Below are links for the Planning Department's Land Use Review Application, submittal requirements and other miscellaneous permit applications.
At the time of submittal, the applicant is required to provide all applicable information requested along with associated filing fees found in the Development Fee Schedule. Incomplete submittals will not be accepted. Any proposed projects requiring multiple applications must be submitted prior to 3:30 p.m. A proposed project requiring only one application must be submitted prior to 4 p.m.
Beginning March 5, 2018, new discretionary permit applications that are reviewed by the Planning Commission or City Council are subject to Council Policy No. 84 - Development Project Public Involvement. This policy is intended to ensure that applicants become aware of and consider input from interested and affected stakeholders prior to a public hearing by the city's decisions makers. The Development Project Public Involvement requirements of this policy replace and augment those of the prior Early Public Notice procedures. One notable procedural change is that the project applicant is now responsible for mailing out Notices of Project Application rather than the city. (However, public hearing and other legally-required notices will continue to be handled by the city, as before.)
For projects subject to Part B Enhanced Stakeholder Outreach, the applicant is responsible for providing outreach notifications to other interested persons who request such notifications. To facilitate initial communication between interested persons and project applicant, the city will publish applicant contact information in its Pending Planning Applications Report for those projects subject to the Part B Enhanced Stakeholder Outreach requirements.
The Environmental Information Form will be used to assist staff in determining what type of environmental documentation will be required to be prepared for your application, per the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and Title 19 of Carlsbad's Municipal Code. The clarity and accuracy of the information you provide is critical for purposes of quickly determining the specific environmental effects of your project.
