New Navigation Pattern on Our Website

Chesterfield County's website redesign may be confusing at first, but this system upgrade allows us to expand online services such as electronic applications, electronic plan review, and on-line payments for Building Inspection, once all the pieces are in place.  If you bookmarked your favorite Building Inspection pages on the old website by placing a shortcut on your desktop, you may want to replace them, marking information most important to you.  
As always, we intend to improve our services and your access to information.  We will be revising our pages as requests for improvement take place.  If you have suggestions of your own, please email them to BI Website Editor.BI-Logo-Final-Wide-OL
