Plan Review & Permitting


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. 
  • 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 Phone: 678-407-6583 so we can help determine if a permit is required.
