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. Please contact our office if you have additional questions.
An accessory structure is considered a pergola, pavilion, gazebo or anything alike.
Accessory structures are regulated by the Florida Building Code and DO require a permit to ensure compliance with state and local regulations.
The permit pay 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)

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.
