The Inspection Division:

Inspection requests should be emailed to or call 770-781-2115.  Please include your permit number and type of inspection needed.

The primary mission of the Inspection division is to enforce mandatory state construction code, thereby ensuring safe and structurally sound construction on residential and commercial buildings. We strive to provide quality service to citizens and the business community of Forsyth County through innovation, continuous improvement, and a commitment to customer service.

Inspections are conducted “trade specific” on all residential and commercial projects throughout the construction process. Inspections are also conducted on commercial buildings when there is a tenant change or change of use. Field Inspectors check and return phone and E-Mail messages between the hours of 7:00 A.M. and 8:00 A.M and 2:30 P.M .and 3:30 P.M. Walk-in Permit Processing Hours: 8:30 A.M.- 4:00 P.M. Monday through Friday


We now have an email group designed to help relay useful information and notifications to builders & third party engineers whenever they arise. If you would like to join this Builder's Email group, please email Taylor Shirley, Administrative Assistant, with the name and email address of the person(s) that wish to be added.  

The Permit Division:

is responsible for permitting all phases of residential and commercial construction including new construction, renovations, additions, & accessory structures.
