The Building Division of the Department of Development Services receives building permit applications for all residential and commercial building projects in Stafford County.
**NOTICE: The new 2021 Building Code cycle comes into effect on January 18, 2024. Applicants are permitted to apply under the 2018 Building Code for one year from the date the new code goes into effect. To learn more, please click here.**
Permit Process 
Prior to issuing a building permit, most permit applications must be reviewed to ensure that plans are in compliance with the most recent update of the building code. This process often involves review from the Zoning Division of the Department of Planning and Zoning to ensure the project complies with current zoning regulations. Once a project has been approved and issued a building permit, the project will be inspected by building inspectors at all phases of construction.
