You can now receive all building permits and schedule inspections at the Leland Town Hall. Please contact the Leland Inspections Department with any building permit or inspection questions. The Town of Navassa Planning Department will be happy to assist with you any building permit or inspection needs.

To obtain a permit, please follow the process below.

Permitting Process:

Before you can obtain a permit from the Town of Leland, the Town of Navassa must issue an approval for the permit. The Town of Navassa issues permit approvals in two ways:

1. Zoning Compliance Approval - The Zoning Compliance Application is used for all projects that involve new construction or the increase in the size of a building or structure. An approved Zoning Compliance Application from the Town of Navassa must be submitted to the Town of Leland before the permit can be issued. Examples of projects requiring Zoning Compliance Approval are:

  • A new single family home, manufactured home, or modular home
  • Any new addition to a single family home, manufactured home, or modular home
  • Any new construction for commercial and industrial buildings
  • A new accessory structure or utility shed
  • A new deck or porch, or the expansion of an existing deck or porch
  • A new swimming pool

2. Permit Approval - The Permit Approval Form is used for all projects that do not involve new construction and do not increase the size of a building or structure. The Town of Navassa must approve all requests for permits and the request form must be submitted to the Town of Leland for the permit to be issued. Examples of projects requiring the Request for Permit Approval are:

  • HVAC changeout
  • Replacement of ductwork
  • Water heater changeout
  • Remodeling of the interior of an existing structure
  • New electrical wiring of an existing structure
  • Replace of interior plumbing of an existing structure

Permit Approval Forms are given at Navassa Town Hall. Please stop by Town Hall or call Sean Ryan, Town Planner at 910-371-2432 for information on receiving the approval form.
