Building Permits & Inspections

Construction - Lobby and Field House - November 5, 2013

Combination Permits

Woodbury uses a combination permit. The permit is issued to the general contractor, or the homeowner acting as the general contractor, for the following residential projects:

  • Addition
  • Basement finish
  • Deck
  • New construction
  • Porch
  • Remodel
  • Repair

The permit will include the fees associated with this project (e.g. building, plan check, plumbing, HVAC, electric, sprinkler), if applicable. When the permit is approved, you will receive an email with further information. Separate permits will only be required on jobs where there is no related combination building permit. Many projects require a plan review. Permit fees are paid at the time the permit is issued.

Stand-Alone Permits

Stand-alone, flat fee permits (e.g. replacement furnace, air conditioner, water heater, water softener, EV charger outlet) will be issued to the licensed contractor doing the work, or to the homeowner if they are doing the work. Stand-alone permits do not require inspector review.

If you are unsure if your project requires a permit, please contact Inspection Services.

Digital Permitting/Non-Contact

Inspections Services is conducting as much business as possible through digital options:

  • Commercial Applications shall be submitted via email
  • All Electric permits shall be submitted via email or postal mail


Contractors must have a current state license on file with the city; to learn more or to verify a license, visit the Contractor License Look-up page
