Permits & Applications

Permits are required for all new construction and must be submitted via the Town's Self-Service Permitting Portal. Any application submitted via mail or email will not be accepted for processing. When making your submittal, please ensure that the appropriate and completed application is provided and that all required submittal items are provided as a PDF (other file types are not supported by the permitting software). The approximate turnaround time for the review of a Zoning Permit is one week.

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.
