Our Upcoming Events
Once you have submitted all of your required documents and building permit fees, our Building Services engineers will review your plans for compliance with applicable codes and regulations. Plan check for new dwellings usually takes four to six weeks. However, plans with special engineering may take longer. Building Services will also submit your plans to the Fire Services agency for review. Fire review takes one to ten days.
When you apply for your Building Permit, Zoning staff will review the plans submitted to ensure that all conditions of approval are satisfied and that the plans are consistent with Zoning approval.
If we return your plans to you for revision and resubmittal, plan check time will increase accordingly. For answers to your plan check questions, please call (510) 238-3891.
