Permits and Inspections

The Development Services Department provides permit, plan review, and inspection services for the City of Raleigh. This is accomplished through the reasonable application of the North Carolina Building Codes and the Raleigh Unified Development Ordinance. 

We also operate the Development Services Customer Service Center on the fourth floor of One Exchange Plaza, and coordinate the independent review of all development-related departments.

While Development Services staff handles most of the permitting and inspections in the City of Raleigh, there are permit and inspections issued through Police, Special Events, and Housing.
