As of 5pm on Friday, March 10, 2023 the City of Port Orange will no longer be accepting building permit applications through the City's online form. Applicants will be able to use the City's new Online Portal to apply for permits online, request inspections on active permits, and make payments.

You can watch live updates of the status of your permit. When the permit is completed you will be able to pay and print the permit right from your homes or office. No more paper copies.

Engineers, Architects, and Surveyors can easily email the contractors Digitally Signed and Sealed Drawings as PDFs. Digitally Signed and Sealed Plans must be uploaded in their original digital format. Scanned Digitally Sealed Plans will not be accepted as scanning removes the digital signature and seal.
