How long will the development/safety codes permitting process take?
The time to issue a permit often depends on the complexity and completeness of the permit. Simple plumbing, gas, electrical and private sewage permits can be issued within a day. Building permits and more complicated work typically are processed within 2 weeks of being received, but can take longer. Once issued, inspections will then be completed during different phases of the construction as outlined on permit. Once all the required inspections are complete and the inspector is satisfied you have complied with the requirement of permit, the permit process is complete.
