Need to schedule an inspection for your building permit? Request a building inspection online.

The Building Division was established to protect those who live and work in Carlsbad by enforcing building and safety standards contained in the state Building Codes and various municipal codes and policies.

NEW! Most first-time submittals require an appointment. First submittals not requiring an appointment are limited to residential applications for patios, decks, simple plumbing, mechanical and electrical permits, and solar plans. Please call 760-602-2723 to schedule your submittal appointment.

Looking for other information? We also provide both technical and procedural information and reports on building activity. You can also search building permit history for a specific property.

Did you know that most of construction waste is recyclable? Please take a moment to review the Construction and Demolition (C&D) guide for more information.
