Building Permits

Building Permits - Renovations / Construction

As you begin your new construction project you will need to be in contact with the Surry County Inspections department before any work is begun to verify what type of permits are required and to avoid any additional costs. 

When beginning this process, one or more of the following permits may be required for your project. The following applications are available for you to print and fill out ahead of time, so you can have them ready when coming to apply. If you need assistance with filling out the applications the Central Permitting staff will have applications available in the office and will be glad to assist you.
