The City of Lawrenceville requires a plan review and issuance of building or development permits prior to construction or remodeling activity. Building permits help ensure that proper inspections are performed; the inspections, in turn, verify that construction or remodeling of a residence or business complies with code requirements.
Building permits are required for all new construction, as well as additions, remodels, and mechanical system replacements. However, permits are not required for minor repair, painting, carpeting/floor covering, etc.
*Please note that these lists are examples and are not comprehensive. Prior to starting a project, please call the Planning and Development Department at 678-407-6583 so we can help determine if a permit is required.
