Building Codes issues construction permits within the city limits of Gallatin and within the Planning Region. This process typically includes plan review, permit issuance, and inspection of projects from the ground up.
The Department is also responsible for the adoption of codes relating to plumbing, electrical, mechanical and structural for both new and existing construction.
As of June 1, expect a 3-day turn-around for permit issuance.
PERMIT HOURS ARE CHANGING! Effective April 16, 2018, permits, payments, and phone calls will be accepted between the hours of 8am and 2pm.
Per Sumner County Ordinance, the Gallatin Building Department is now required to obtain proof of payment of Adequate Facility Tax prior to permitting. Please include receipt of payment with the permit application packet.
