Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman and the Department of Inspections and Permits announced today the launch and full implementation of the Land Use Navigator (LUN) online platform. The LUN is a significant upgrade that replaces the previous outdated mainframe program. Customers can now apply for all permit types, renew and apply for licenses, schedule inspections, upload documents, and pay fees 100% online at

“The release of the new platform will be a game-changer for our residents and businesses,” said County Executive Steuart Pittman. “It is the first step in a series of efforts to modernize land use operations that increases transparency and ensures a smoother, easier, and less cumbersome inspection and permitting process.”

According to a County press release:

Plan submittals, reviews, and revisions are also accepted online. Ultimately, LUN will facilitate a paperless permitting process. The LUN also improves the efficiency of inspection services. Licensing and permitting center services resume today and all inspectors have been issued iPads and are able to input inspection results, upload pictures and documents on site.

“We are excited to provide this enhanced level of service to our customers and the citizens of Anne Arundel County,” said Mark Wedemeyer, Director of the Department of Inspections and Permits.  “Thank you to the administration, my department staff and our agency partners: Office of Information Technology, Planning and Zoning, Health Department, Public Works and Fire Marshal’s Office for their support and assistance as we have worked as a team to achieve this extraordinary accomplishment.”

The Department of Inspections and Permits website has been redesigned to correlate terminology and service information with LUN.
