SUBJECT: New Permit Applications                             

DATE: September 23, 2013


Effective October 1, 2013, the Department of Building Construction and Inspections will implement the new permit fees that were adopted by the Henrico Board of Supervisors on April 23, 2013.  Implementation of the new fees required development of new permit application forms. Please note the following changes and/or additions:

  • Forms have been modified to expand the general description of work being performed, provide additional entries for listing email addresses and larger spacing to complete the applications, as well as a place for printed names where signatures are required.
  • The owner’s affidavit section has also been removed from the applications and is now published separately.  The owner’s affidavit is only required to be completed when a licensed contractor is not required to perform or supervise the work covered by the permit.
  • The new electrical, plumbing, mechanical, amusement device and sign permit applications and the new owner’s affidavit are formatted to a standard 8-1/2 x 11 size paper.  The new commercial and residential building permit applications are formatted to 8-1/2 x 14 standard sizes.

All of the new permit applications and the new owner’s affidavit form are available.  The new applications and form can either be downloaded from our website at henrico.us/bldg or picked up at our offices or the Permit Center on the 2nd floor of the Administration Building at 4301 E. Parham Rd. or at the Permit Center in the Eastern Government Center at 3820 Nine Mile Rd.  The current permit applications will not be accepted as of October 1, 2013 and should be discarded.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please call our office at 804-501-4360.
