Building permit application process

Builders must supply the following construction documents to the City of Walker:

1. House plans
2. A plat showing the location of the house
3. A completed Building Permit application. To obtain one online, click here.
4. A Flood Elevation Certificate, which can be obtained from a surveyor of your choosing. Two will be needed to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy. These include:

» Building Under Construction Elevation Certificate
» Finished Construction Elevation Certificate

Once those materials have been submitted, the construction documents are in the plan review stage. The Permit Department will calculate a building permit fee, review the plans for code compliance and generate a plan-review letter at the end of the review. You will be contacted and informed of the permit fee and any plan-review changes that must be made to meet code compliance.

Building codes

Your plans will be reviewed for code compliance. For a list of applicable construction codes and editions, click here.

Now that you have a permit

» Permits must be posted on the job site, along with the address and lot number.
» Electrical, plumbing and mechanical permits are required on all jobs before the rough-in begins.
» Inspections of foundations [including rough-in plumbing] will be done as soon as possible after the call for an inspection.
» A Flood Elevation Certificate is required. A Buidling Under Construction Elevation Certificate must be supplied to this office before construction begins, and the Finished Construction Elevation Certificate must be turned in before a final inspection and Certificate of Occupancy is issued.
» All other inspections, such as electrical, plumbing and mechanical, will be done the same day or the next business working day.
» No inspections will be done without a permit.
» Insulation cannot be installed and walls cannot be sealed without proper passed inspections.
» All jobs are required to have a dumpster for trash and construction debris removal.
» No open burning.
» All jobs are required to have a portable toilet on site.
» Erosion protection shall be installed within the street right-of-way before construction begins.
» A $50 re-inspection fee will be charged when a second trip to a construction site is required due to rejection or lock-out.
