When Permits are Required

The Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (USBC) determines when a permit is required. In simple terms, a permit is required when ever a structure or any of it's regulated systems are built, assembled, altered, or removed or demolished. There are some exceptions to this that are listed in the USBC.

If after reviewing the above, you are in doubt, please contact the Building Official, describe the situation and ask for a determination as to whether a permit is required.
