Customer Self Service Portal (CSS)

The Building and Economic Development Department accepts online, digital plan submission and inspection requests. We use the Forsyth County Customer Self Service (CSS) portal for these certain plan and permit applications, inspections requests, status tracking, information gathering and fee payment.

Logo for CSS. Click the image to browse planning and community development permits online.

The How do I Use CSS? Section below includes links that explain how to access and use CSS.

An account is not required to view information or track the status of an application. To apply for plans and permits, pay fees or request an inspection, a free user account is required.


We have provided several guides to help you get started using the CSS portal.

Please note: Plans previously submitted for review using ePlan Solutions will remain in review using that system until they are approved. Building and Economic Development staff will coordinate with the applicant on these plans.
