Permits and Inspections

Currently, the Development Services Center & Building Safety (Permits & Inspections) are working in remote mode and all services are being done electronically.  Please direct questions to the Development Services Center at 757-664-6565.  

For information on past and current permits and inspections consider using our Open Data Portal.  To search for a specific address or permit number use the 'Permit and Inspections Search Tool' feature on the left of the screen.

Below are the different gateways to submit permits and to schedule inspections. We are not conducting business by fax, check payments, or mail-ins due to working remotely.
