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. 

Once you've made application, the permit is usually ready the same day.   If any additional information is required, you will receive an email with the details. 

Once you have received your permit, the job card will outline what inspections are necessary for your project.  You may schedule the inspection 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.
