A permit is required if the deck is attached to the dwelling or is 30 inches (or more) above grade. A building permit application must be completed and submitted to Construction Services. Allow a minimum of 3 business days for review of the plans. You will be contacted when the building permit is ready to be issued. Cost of the permit is based upon the size of the deck. With your permit you will receive a copy of your approved plan. Please be aware that if you later decide to make changes to your plan, these changes must also be approved.
A Permit Application Checklist outlining all application requirements is provided with this handout and must be completed and submitted with your application. See pages within for sample Site Plans, Ledger Connection, Lateral Load Connection, Framing / Foundation Plan and Standard Details.
