Permit Process

Permit Submission

All permit applications and site plans submitted to the City of West Melbourne, 2240 Minton Road, are received by the permit coordinator and reviewed and evaluated for administrative compliance. The permit coordinator is the central point of contact for all permits processed including status, disposition and location for all permits and is responsible for distributing the submitted permit applications along with required supporting documentation to the appropriate personnel for processing.





Plan Review

Our professional plan review staff is responsible for reviewing the plans submitted to permitting of both residential and commercial development. The primary function of the Plan Review section is to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare through structural strength, means of egress, stability, conservation and fire protection.

Permit applications and construction plans are reviewed to verify that the proposed construction complies both with the City ordinances and the Florida Building Code. Our plan review staff is on duty between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and are generally available for questions.

Permit Approval

When the permit has been approved by all outside agencies and City personnel, the permit coordinator will issue the permit(s), determine the appropriate fees, maintain historical record and prepare state and local reports. The permit coordinator also maintains a list of contractor information and licenses and a contractor's master file of standard construction plans.

Construction Inspections

Our professional inspection staff is responsible for conducting inspections on all permitted construction projects, residential and commercial. The primary function of the inspectors is to safeguard the public health, safety and general welfare. This is accomplished by verification that the construction was completed as specified in the submitted plans and is in substantial compliance with the Florida Building Code.
