The Town of Smyrna Permits and Inspections department ensures the safe and lawful use of buildings and properties by enforcing the Town’s building, plumbing, mechanical and gas codes. Our main activities include performing plan examinations, issuing construction permits, and performing inspections. We also issue Certificates of Occupancies, which signify that the structure has been inspected for compliance with all adopted codes. In all our activities, our focus is on safety, service and integrity.

The Department's most frequent customers are building owners, developers, architects, engineers and members of the construction industry. Anyone who intends to demolish, alter, build an addition or erect a new structure must obtain a building permit from the Department to ensure that the resulting house, loft, apartment, office, garage, house of worship or any other residential, commercial or industrial structure complies with all applicable laws.
