What is a building permit application?

After contacting the Building Division, you will have to complete an application for a building permit. It will require basic information about the project, such as who will perform the work, what work will be done, and how it will be done. The application process also will require you to submit drawings, plans or other documents for review. If the construction plans do not meet the Village's Building Code and Zoning Ordinance, or other related ordinance requirements, a code official will explain what needs to be corrected. To receive a permit you will have to pay a fee. The permit fee helps defray the cost of the Village of Palatine staffs time spent on the application, and the review and inspection process.
