PERMITS & APPLICATIONS

BUILDING PERMITS

Applications for building permits are required to be submitted for installations regulated by the Georgia State Minimum Building Codes if any owner or authorized agents intends to:

  • Construct, enlarge, alter, repair, move, demolish, or change the occupancy of a building or structure;
  • Erect, install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert, or replace any electrical, gas, mechanical, or plumbing system.

Most construction work done within the City requires a permit from the Planning and Development Department and the corresponding required inspections by the Building Official from beginning of construction to issuance of a certificate of occupancy. 

Many citizens contact our Department inquiring about when a residential building permit is required. The “rule of thumb” is that a building permit is required if you are modifying or adding to an existing structure.

All permits shall be submitted online at www.duluthga.net/permits

If you have any questions please contact the City's Building Official, Joe Stapleton or Carol Hill.
