A building permit is required for all new construction.  Also, building permits are required for any addition or alteration to existing structures, including decks and roofs. Signs, accessory structures, fences, spas and pools require a building permit prior to installation, but these type plans must FIRST be submitted to the Zoning Department for prior approval. This includes work performed by the homeowners or business owners. 

*We encourage contacting the Inspector or Zoning Director (205-467-2851) prior to any construction for more information regarding permits.
