When is a building permit required?
Visit our Building Permit Exemption page for a list of activities that do not require a building permit. If your activity is not listed, then a permit is required. Even if a building permit isn't required, structures must still meet zoning setback requirements and other permits (conditional use, grading or critical area permits) may also be necessary, so it is best to give us a call at 360-825-3593, or send an email.
