It is our goal to give the public the necessary information to help in the development and permitting of new construction within the county. The permitting and inspection procedure established for Washington County is required by Florida Statutes and ensures contractors follow the State of Florida Building Codes. Proper permitting and inspections reduce the threat of fire and help reduce the damage caused by flooding, winds, tornadoes, and hurricanes, thus paving the way for a safer working and living environment. The Washington County Building Department is responsible for issuing Building Permits, Reviewing Plans, and Performing Electrical & Building Inspections and maintaining Contractors Licensing.
To schedule an inspection, please contact Building Department staff at least 48 hours prior to inspection date.
The Washington County Board of County Commissioners have suspended the Impact Fees for Residential Development only. Impact Fees still apply to all new Commercial Development.
