The Department of Building Safety enforces the commercial and residential regulations of the 2006 edition of the International Code Council through the plan review and inspection processes. This department accepts applications for all construction permits and Board of Construction Appeals, collects fees, issues permits, schedules inspections, maintains permit record files and issues occupancy certificates.
Building Codes play an integral role in maintaining the quality of construction in Blount County, assisting builders and the general public with the building codes and other regulations to the mutual benefit of both. It is our mission to protect and serve the citizens of Blount County through the fair and ethical enforcement of adopted construction codes, zoning regulations, and construction safety standards. This is accomplished by an efficient administration, qualified professional staff, ongoing citizen and customer education efforts, and active enforcement on new and existing construction to include housing and property maintenance standards.
