How long does it take to get a permit?
Generally permits will be issued either the day they are applied for or the following working day. In some cases for large or unusual projects, the City may require up to 2 weeks. If you are planing a project that may not fit into the category of typical construction work, please involve us early in the planning, even if it is just to sit down and discuss your overall idea of what you would like to do.
