Customer Self Service (CSS) Digital Application Submission

We are proud to offer the Forsyth County Customer Self Service (CSS) portal for certain plan and permit applications, inspections requests, status tracking, information gathering and fee payment.

Please refer to the details below about CSS and digital application submittals for each of our Divisions.
