Fayette County Department of Building Safety is preparing to begin ONLINE PERMITTING on October 17, 2016. As of that date, we will no longer accept paper applications over the counter in our office.
***As part of this online permitting process, all applications requiring Environmental Health approval will be required to have approval prior to submitting an application for building permit. This is a change from our current procedure that allows applicants to proceed with just a receipt showing they have applied for Environmental Health approval.**
Environmental Health approval times vary, but may take several weeks. Please contact Environmental Health directly at 770-305-5415 for any questions regarding their approval process.
Pre-Inspection Checklist Cards
Fayette County Permits & Inspections Department is pleased to announce the creation and availability of Pre-Inspection Checklist Cards for our Building Community. These durable, double sided, color printed cards are meant to be handy, useful tools to help the local homebuilder and construction industry successfully complete Fayette County Building Inspections. Although non-conclusive of all code requirements observed during the inspection process, these checklists are assembled to assist in resolving the most frequent of code violations. The printed cards will be available at the Permits & Inspections Department or in limited supply from our Inspectors. Read More.
