Forsyth County Plan Submittal

We are proud to offer two different choices for plan review submittals.  You may now submit plans either by paper or electronically.  For your convenience you can use ePlan Solutions (ePs) to submit your plans electronically.  No other form type of electronic submittal will be accepted.

For submittal details go to  This is a third party company and a submittal fee will be required for electronic use.  No additional application form will be required when submitting through ePs. The information uploaded to ePs will be used as an application for the submittal process.  All Planning and Community Development plan review fees will be due at the time of submittal and can be submitted as cash, check or credit.  Payments can be mailed, called in or dropped off during business hours. If using a credit card we only accept visa or mastercard at this time and you can fill out the bankcard transaction form.  Please be advised paper plans will still be required to be printed once electronically stamped approved for use in the field.

We only allow plans to be submitted via ePs as a PDF format.
