Permits & Applications

** NEW PERMITTING SOFTWARE **

On September 19, 2022, the Town implemented new software for the intake and processing of Zoning Permits. This new software requires that all plans included as part of a Zoning Permit submittal be provided as a PDF (other files types are not supported). Zoning Permit applications that are mailed or emailed to the Town will not be accepted for processing.

** NEW SUBMITTAL REQUIREMENTS **

As of October 10, 2022, there are new submittal requirements for Zoning Permits. Please review these newly adopted requirements before submitting your permit application.

 

A permit is required for all new construction. Typical turnaround time for a Zoning Permit is 48 hours depending on the date the permit is received.

The Town does not issue building permits, this is handled by Union County, however a Zoning Permit from the Town must be obtained in order to receive a building permit. All inquiries regarding what is needed to obtain a Building Permit from Union County should be directed to the Building Code Enforcement Division at 500 North Main Street, Monroe, NC, or by calling 704-283-3816.

Before completing an application for a Zoning Permit for a new home, all applicants, regardless of land area disturbed, must fill out an electronic Notice of Intent (e-NOI) form to receive a Certificate of Coverage (COC) under the NCG01 Permit. A COC is required BEFORE obtaining a Zoning Permit. For directions on filling out the e-NOI, click here.
