Over-the-counter services now by appointment

Planning Division counter services are offered between 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The City will continue to follow pandemic safety protocols.  A face covering is required to enter any City offices and throughout your visit to City Hall.

If you are having technical issues with the appointment system, email PlanningRedondo@redondo.org and a staff member will assist you with appointment setup.

But why not save the trip?

The Planning Division will still continue to provide online assistance for questions and plan reviews, for anyone that would prefer that option.  We can also offer Zoom virtual meetings upon request, in-lieu of counter consultations. Details are outlined below.

Online and Digital Assistance:

For Planning inquiries, or to have preliminary drawings reviewed, you can email the Planning Division at PlanningRedondo@redondo.org. 

Project Conceptual Review

 Your project may require a conceptual review/approval by the Planning Division prior to plan check submittal or permit issuance from the Building and Safety Division. If so you will be directed to call or email the Planning Division. We will then designate a planner to work with you to coordinate receipt of any electronic plans or documents and schedule a remote review of your project with you via telephone or other teleconferencing application. There may be corrections required before the Planning Division will stamp the plans Reviewed for Submittal (where possible, stamps may be coordinated internally rather than requiring a hard copy of plans to be submitted). The planner assigned to your project will inform you of any revisions or corrections necessary throughout the review.

The Planning Division contact to assist in initiating this process is email: PlanningRedondo@redondo.org 

Planning Permit Applications

If your project requires a permit from the Planning Division, we will coordinate that process remotely. To do so, call or email the Planning Division. Similar to the Project Conceptual Review section above, we will coordinate receipt of any electronic plans or documents and schedule a remote review of your project. Staff will inform you of the fees (City may issue an invoice in order to coordinate online payment) and required submittal documents and will schedule a Bin Drop Off time for you. Please see bottom of page for Bin Drop Off and Pick Up instructions.
