Express Plan Review
The Catawba County Building Inspections Division has implemented a development review process to provide customers the opportunity to have their design professionals meet with local government officials to accelerate plan approvals and permit issuance. If all required information, plans and forms have been received, permits are normally issued within 24 hours of approval.

The program is scheduled on Wednesdays and presently includes alterations, interior up-fits, new construction, additions and change of use. This optional service allows projects to accelerate the review and permitting process, thus allowing construction to begin sooner. This service is heavily dependent on the completeness of plans and associated documents that are submitted. Due to the inherent dangers associated with hazardous locations this occupancy classification will not be permitted to use Express Plan Review.

All building and site permitting, including stormwater and erosion control permits, are issued at the local level.  For more detailed information visit the Catawba County Building Services website.
