Permits & Inspections
The Department of Permits and Inspections provides permitting, inspection and code enforcement services to protect the health, safety and welfare of all citizens of Frederick County. The function of the Department is the issuance of Zoning Certificates, Building Permits, Electrical and Plumbing Permits, Gaming Permits and other related permits in Frederick County (excluding Frederick City and Mt. Airy). Applications are sent to the appropriate agencies for approval before being issued. The Department is also the centralized location for the collection of many fees for non-building permits and impact fees. Once a permit has been issued, field inspections are done on a fixed schedule. Inspections are conducted consistent with the adopted County Ordinance or Code that may apply to each permit.

The Department of Permits and Inspections acts as a clearinghouse for permit applications. Applications are distributed and tracked from this office. Inquiries about the status of the permit approval should be directed to this Department.
