Florida Statute Changes to Building Permit Application Reviews, Effective April 1, 2024:

Changes in Florida Statute have affected the way Volusia County can perform permit application reviews. These changes restrict our ability to perform simultaneous reviews for permits in compliance with the Volusia County Code of Ordinances and reviews for permits in compliance with the Florida Building Code at the same time. It also limits our ability to request additional information to evaluate applications. As of Monday, April 1, 2024, waivers for simultaneous reviews will no longer be offered.

Beginning Monday, April 1, 2024, all applications for residential or commercial structures will go through a two-step review process. Step 1, Pre-Application Review, includes all non-Florida Building Code reviews for site development. This may include Zoning, Land Development, Environmental, Utilities, Fire Services, Development Engineering, and Planning. A Pre-Application Approval will be provided when all reviews have been approved in Step 1. The Pre-Application Approval is required prior to the submittal of the Building Permit application for Step 2. During Step 2, the building review for compliance with the Florida Building Code will take place within the timeframes specified in the Florida Building Code. A user guide has been provided to assist you with these changes.
