Commercial Walk-thru Permit Process

Chesterfield County offers a walk-thru plan review and permitting process for projects meeting certain eligibility criteria:

  • Classrooms, construction or sales trailers (industrialized buildings) with no plumbing.
  • Demolition of an entire structure (does not include partial demolition)
  • Re-roof
  • Signs
  • Tents greater than 900 square feet or accommodating more than 50 people (Tents less than 900 square feet do not require a permit.).

Commercial walk-thru permits are accepted in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays (9 - 11 a.m.).

If deficiencies are found during the review process and the permit cannot be issued, the applicant will receive a letter outlining the corrections required.
