It is the function of the Permit Division of the Community Development Department to ensure permitted projects are constructed in a safe manner adhering to the minimum building codes adopted by the City of Perry and the State of Georgia.
Building permits are required for residential, commercial, and industrial structures; including, but not limited to structures 120 square feet and larger, building additions, swimming pools, renovations, and remodels. Permits are also required for certain electrical, plumbing, and mechanical work for all structures.
In an effort to better serve our customers the Community Development Department has been reviewing and revising operating procedures as it pertains to plan review, permits, and inspections.
Changes have been implemented as it pertains to residential and commercial projects effective January 2, 2018. These changes are to streamline the Community Development’s processes so we are better serving our customers.
Note: All commercial/industrial plans are required to be reviewed by the Perry Fire & Emergency Services Department. The Department of Community Development is the point of contact and will distribute all plans submitted for proper review and approval. Prior to the issuance of a permit all reviews must be completed and associated fees paid. Estimated lead time for reviews is approximately two weeks.
