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 Appraiser's website.

It is recommended before starting the permitting process, all proposed construction projects should contact the Planning Division, 386-626-7005, to verify the zoning 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, Extension 12097.

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.  View the current edition of the Building Valuation Data Table.

Permits are reviewed and processed according to date received.

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.

Let Us Know

Over the next several months, we will be attending events throughout the city where people can write down their thoughts on ways we can improve the city. Please write anything - but keep it clean and reasonable :)

There will be chalkboards located in Artisan Alley and on the south side of The Elusive Grape where you can write your thoughts down about any topic that you think will improve our city. Trader Joe's anyone?

Also, to get the word out, we have setup a selfie spot with our logo by each chalkboard. Please feel free to post a photo Facebook or Twitter with comments on how to better our community with the hashtag #YouAreDeLand - we might even share your ideas on our Facebook and Twitter pages! Ultimately, your comments will be used to guide the update to the city's 2050 Vision Plan.

The bottom line is we want your input on how we can make DeLand an awesome place to live, work and play for future generations.

Be sure to check back to this site for any updates or new announcements.

Option 3

Attend one of the public events scheduled around the DeLand region. You will be able to discuss the present and future of the DeLand region with our staff and provide input about You Are DeLand. Keep an eye on this website and the City's Facebook page for updates.

Here are the events we are planning to attend:

  • Tropical Nights - July 19
  • Mayor's Backpack Giveaway - July 20
  • DeLand Craft Show - September 28

What's next?

Your input through the public participation process will shape future planning so please send us your comments and let others know about our project.

As we compile citizens' comments in the coming months, we will ultimately present what we have learned and provide more opportunities to receive input at future public meetings. This should help us focus on key aspects of our community's future as the city updates its plans.
