The Office of Building Services is moving to a new online permitting system. As of NEED A DATE, Building Services will no longer be using our legacy permitting system.
Lake County's Office of Planning and Zoning and Office of Building Services are responsible for short- and long-range planning; review, permitting and inspection of land development; and monitoring of the environment in unincorporated Lake County under the County's Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Regulations as well as provides assistance and manages services for both the businesses of Lake County and Lake County visitors.
NOTICE Building Services current permitting system will no longer be available on NEED A DATE. We recommend using the new system now and getting familiar with it. We're here to help. Let us know if you have any questions.

Planning & Zoning
Don't forget about zoning!
The new OPRS system will require you to get Zoning Clearances before you can finish your permitting application.
Got Gophers? Get Permits.
Before you begin clearing for a building project, you must obtain a permit from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) if either gopher tortoises or their burrows are present on the development site.
The gopher tortoise is protected under Florida law, Chapter 68A-27 of the Florida Administrative Code. Protect yourself and this imperiled species.
