DeLand, FL 32720
8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday – Friday

The Building Division processes all building permits for projects located within the city limits of DeLand.  If the project is located in unincorporated Volusia County, the permit will need to be obtained from the Building Department of Volusia County.  If you have a question about whether your property is located in the city or county, go to the property appraisers website at

It is recommended before starting the permitting process, all proposed construction projects should contact the Planning Division, (386) 626-7005, to verify the regulations for the type of structure you plan to build.


ATTENTION HOMEOWNERS: It is in your best interest to secure permits for all work that is constructed on your property.  Permits are necessary to satisfy insurance requirements, and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our citizens.  Any work completed without obtaining the proper permits could result in complications when selling your home such as preventing the sale of the property until the work is compliant with current city and building codes, in addition to the risk of incurring fines for completing the work without a permit.

        NOTE: New Commercial Construction projects including additions are required to submit a county impact fee
        application along with a copy of the floor plan to the Volusia County Permit Center in order for County
        transportation impact fees to be calculated.  Volusia County impact fees can be deferred until the completion
        of the project.  The Certificate of Occupancy will      not be issued until all fees are paid in full.  For more
        information, please call (386) 736-5929.


A non-refundable application fee is charged on all permit applications at the time of submittal.

$30.00 for Residential Projects
$50.00 for Commercial Projects

New Construction valuation will be based on the current rate of the ICC Building Valuation Data Table or actual value, whichever is greater.  To view the current edition of the Building Valuation Data Table visit

Permits are reviewed and processed according to date received.  If you wish to have an expedited review (3 day) an additional $160.00 will be charged for residential projects and $100.00 per 1,000 sq ft will be charged on commercial projects.

Any deficiencies are addressed by the Plans Examiner.  The applicant will be contacted to respond to any comments or clarification the plans examiner may need in order to continue processing the application for approval.  Please make sure a valid email address and or phone number is on the permit application in order to expedite correspondence.  The application will remain on hold until all requests from the plans examiner have been satisfied.

After the permit application has received all applicable approvals, the Building Division will contact the applicant to inform the cost of the permit.  Permit fees are to be paid in full at time of pick up.  Cash, check, money order, Visa or Mastercard are accepted.
