UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, ALL CONSTRUCTION AND TRADE PERMITS WILL BE ISSUED BY BUNCOMBE COUNTY DUE TO A STAFFING SHORTAGE. CONTRACTORS AND OWNERS WILL STILL BE REQUIRED TO OBTAIN ZONING, STORMWATER, AND/OR FIRE APPROVAL BEFORE A PERMIT WILL BE ISSUED BY BUNCOMBE COUNTY. PERMIT APPLICATIONS MAY BE OBTAINED HERE OR BY VISITING THEIR OFFICE AT 30 VALLEY STREET, ASHEVILLE, NC 28801.
We are excited to announce our new online permit portal! With the portal, you may apply online for construction permits, trade permits, and stormwater permits. You may submit all supporting documentation online, pay online, request and track inspections online and more! All other permits are linked to the portal and can be submitted by email.
Contractors will be given a token number that will be unique to the contractor to track the status of permits and inspections, request inspections and submit permits and documentation.
If you are a new contractor, please call our office at (828) 419-9300, option 6, and we will get you setup on the portal.
