The paper applications for permits have been placed on this page for your convenience. Please note that paper copies, as well as the online application link (where appropriate) have been provided. We strongly recommend that applicants for electrical, plumbing and mechanical permits utilize the online link for access to the Land Development Office software to apply for permits, check on status of permit issuance, schedule inspections, and to monitor the status of all final inspection approvals and Certificate of Compliance issuance. If you are utilizing the paper applications, please complete the form and either mail or fax it to City-County Inspections. The permit application forms must be viewed and printed using Adobe Acrobat Reader. Download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Complete the form and either mail or fax it to City-County Inspections Department, 101 City Hall Plaza, N.C., 27701, fax: (919) 560-4484. The permit cannot be processed without payment. The form on the website is an application only.
You may then come to the Inspections Department on the ground floor of City Hall to pay the permit fee.
No work may commence without having first obtained the permit. If you are a licensed general contractor who is billed by the City, you will be contacted when your permit has been issued.
