Inspections Department

COVID-19 Update


Fuquay-Varina Town Hall is open for the following limited services: Utility Business, Permitting Business, and Planning submittals only. Find info on doing business at Town Hall here.

Pertaining to Permit applications, building/construction plans, trade permits.

We encourage you to use the two Drop Boxes located behind Town Hall next to the Utility Payment Drop Box which should be used for submitting permit application fees and payments if you do not choose to utilize the online option.  Payments dropped in the Utility Payment Drop Box should be in an envelope and clearly labeled.  Please call and let us know it has been dropped.  These Large Drop Off Boxes are labeled Pick Up and Drop Off. They will be located there from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm weekdays. The drop boxes are checked hourly.      

e-Permits for new single-family construction can either be paid online or placed in the Payment Drop Box located behind Town Hall. The Inspections Department will email the building permit, approved building plans and approved site plans to the contractor. It will be the responsibility of the contractor to print the approved plans in color (11” x 17”) and site plan in color and have them on site for all inspections.

Over the counter new single-family permits and small building trade permits (decks, pools, screen porches, detached garages, finishing off an unfinished area and renovations):   We have set-up a Large Drop Box located behind Town Hall for contractors/developers to place their plans and application in. Once these have been processed, reviewed and ready for issuance an email or phone call will be made to the contractor saying your permit is ready for payment and issuance. Payment can be made either online or thru the Payment Drop Box located behind Town Hall. The building permit, plans and site/plot plan can be issued back to the contractor thru the Large Drop Box located behind Town Hall with the plans and building permit in one package/bundle with the contractor’s name and job location on it.

Commercial building permits/plans, plats, site plans and subdivision plans will be handled thru the Large Drop Box just as the over the counter permits. Any payments can be handled by utilizing online payment or the Payment Drop Box.
