Building Division

A building permit is required for most building projects. Discuss your plans with City staff or email us before beginning any work.

As of August 25th, 2021 Local Specialty Contractor’s (memo) list has been revised, please contact Volusia County Contractor Licensing; (386) 736-5957.

Please note that Florida Statue 553 provides the building department 30 working days from acceptance of completed single family residential applications, and 45 working days from acceptance of completed commercial applications for review. As such, please be informed that in regards to any requests received on the status of a permit prior to the 31st  or 46th day respectively after application, the permit shall be considered “in review”, and no additional information shall be given at that time. Staff shall notify all applicants by phone or in writing when their application has been approved, and shall notify the applicant in writing of any requests for additional information or permit denials.
