Chesterfield County offers a walk-through plan review and permitting process for certain types of commercial building permit applications. The intent is for applicants to obtain a permit during a single visit. Commercial projects available for the walk-thru process include:
Classroom, construction or sales trailers (industrialized buildings)
Demolition of the entire structure (does not include partial demolition)
Tents greater than 900 square feet (without food preparation within the tent). Tents less than 900 square feet do not require permits
Commercial Walk-Thru applications are accepted:
Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
If deficiencies are found during the review process and the permit cannot be issued, the applicant receives a letter outlining the corrections needed. The walk-through process is available to anyone whose project meets eligibility criteria.
