The Permit Administration Section, through its Permit Coordinators, receives and reviews applications for construction and non-construction permits and issues permits once compliance is verified.
Permits for construction are requests for new construction of primary and/or accessory structures and additions to existing structures. They also include mobile home placement and swimming pool installations.
Permits for non-construction undertakings include requests for home occupations, taxi services, commercial signs, changes of use or changes of occupancy for existing commercial buildings.
Most importantly, because St. Charles Parish must now comply with the International Building Codes, the responsibilities of the Permit Administration section have expanded greatly over the past several years.
