Online Permitting
  • Due to Baldwin County's response to COVID-19, the Building Department now offers the New Online Permit Applications website where you may apply for permits from the convenience of your office or home.
  • Choose the appropriate application and fill in the blanks on your computer, laptop, or tablet. Save the completed application as a document on your device. Make sure your changes are saved and showing up before uploading and submitted the document into the website.
  • Some permit applications require additional documentation that cannot be uploaded into the system (such as construction plans). While our office lobbies are still closed, you may drop off those documents at any of our three office locations. We have drop boxes available outside during normal business hours of Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. Please make sure to leave your name and contact information with any documentation that you drop off. 
  • Once your permit application has been reviewed and approved, you will receive an email notification for you to pay for your permit online.
  • NOTE: Due to increased fees by MasterCard and Visa, the convenience fee for this online service is 3.65% effective April 1, 2020.
