Permitting and Inspections

The Planning and Development Department issues permits for new residential and commercial construction as well as repairs, remodels, additions, and other land development activities. 

Construction projects are reviewed for Zoning, Stormwater, Flood and NC Building Code compliance. Depending on the location of the project, permits may also be required to ensure compliance with other state and federal regulations, including the North Carolina Coastal Management Act (CAMA) and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Planning Staff can assist in the application process and providing information on the requirements applicable to specific projects. 

You can submit your paperwork in person or via E-Mail. Registered contractors also have the ability to submit their permits via our on-line system.

For Permitting Questions and/or to submit your forms via E-Mail contact: planning@nagsheadnc.gov
