We have tried our best to provide all the information necessary on this page to help you understand the process for permitting your project from beginning to the end. 

 

All communication is done through automated email notifications - please be sure to verify we have your correct email address on file. 

 

The processing time for the permit is usually 3 - 5 days.    

 

During the review process, if any additional information is required, you will receive an email with the details. Revisions can be submitted in the same manner you applied for the permit (manually or online)

 

If required, a swale plan will be provided when you receive your permit. 

 

When the permit is made ready, payment can be made online through our website.   Once the permit has been issued, the job card, receipt and permit will be emailed to you.    If you have submitted online, the approved documents can be downloaded from our website.    

 

You may schedule inspections by calling 386-986-4747 or through this website.

 

All approved documents are required to be available for the inspector when he arrives.   The inspector will sign your job card if the inspections passes.   

 

Disapprovals will be left at the job and emailed through the automatic notification system.
