Contractor Permit Types
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.
A boatlift permit type is used when the dock is existing.
The permit may be submitted in person at City Hall or through our online permitting process. The same method for submittals/corrections must be followed until the permit has been issued (if you submit online, the process must follow one line and vice versa)
**Regardless of the submittal method, you may follow the progression of your permit application online. www.palmcoastgov.com/eplanreview using the guest access and your address or permit #.
The permit review is usually completed within 3-5 business days. If additional information or corrections are necessary, an email notification will be sent with the details.
An automatic email will be sent when the permit application has been approved. Payments can be made online or in person regardless of submittal method.
Approved documents are to be printed from the website (or picked up if submitted manually) and are to be at the site when the inspector arrives.
The inspections identified on the job card/online inspection tab are required for your project. If you feel there are missing inspections or something is not required, please contact the plan reviewers at 386-986-3782.
Inspections can be scheduled through the online permitting portal or by calling our automated inspection system at 386-986-4747.
When the inspector has been assigned to your inspection, an email notification will be sent containing the inspector's name and phone #. You may contact him directly for a two hour time frame for arrival. Inspections requested prior to 6:59 a.m. will be done the same day. Any inspection requested after 7:00 a.m. will be done the following business day.
The permit will remain active for six months from the date of issuance, if the permit expires without the required inspections, a new permit will be required.
