Residential Permits – new Applicants and Issued Permits (Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical, Low Voltage, Sprinkler):
The County is processing new residential permits online. Out of abundance of caution for public health and safety because of COVID-19, non-emergency residential inspections provided by the County will be suspended at this time for Occupied Homes. Pursuant to Governor Kemp’s Executive Order 03.20.20.02, owners of occupied homes have the option of retaining a private professional provider immediately to provide required inspections in accordance with State law and County Code. If you would like the County to inspect, please schedule/reschedule inspections once the mandated social distancing requirements are relaxed and Clayton County Community Development office reopens for in-office business. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please use our on-line Customer Service Portal to apply for PERMITS, LICENSES and ZONING REQUESTS.
The portal will allow you to:
- Track your application status, and
- Schedule Inspections.
