Planning & Permitting Information

Do You need a Permit?

You will need to apply for a Land Use Permit if you are planning to build or add to any structure. This includes substantial renovations, any additions as well as fences, decks, pools, sheds and storage buildings.

For businesses moving into new or existing commercial space, you will also need to apply for a Land Use Permit for zoning compliance.

If the North Carolina Building Code applies to your project, you will also need to apply for a Building Permit.

How to Apply for a Permit

The Land Use Permit fee is $35 and the Permit Form can be found at the left of the screen under the "Forms & Documents" page as Land Use Permit.

The Building Permit fee varies based on the type and size of the project. Please refer to the Rate and Fee Schedule found under the tab on the left side of your screen. The Building Permit Form can also be found at the left of the screen under the "Forms & Documents" page as Building Permit.
