How do I get a building permit?

You may obtain a building permit through the Planning Office by providing the Department with a plat of your property and a description of the work to be permitted. For new home construction, a septic permit, a recorded plat of the property, and a site plan showing driveway, septic, setbacks, and structure location needs to be provided. If you are within 200 feet of State waters, an erosion control plan will also need to be submitted.
