Building Permit Applications and Handouts

Washington Building Code Update - February 1, 2021
Effective February 1, 2021, Washington State will implement the 2018 Building Codes and Washington State Energy Code.                
     -     Complete application submittals received prior to February 1, 2021 will be reviewed and inspected under the 2015 codes.                
       -     Complete application submittals received on or after February 1, 2021 will be reviewed and inspected under the 2018 codes.

Applications may be submitted outside of office hours via our front door drop-box and email (permits@co.walla-walla.wa.us).  Per WWCC 14.07.050, a complete building permit application shall include a "fully completed and signed application form" and those documents required by WWCC Title 15 - Building and Construction, as listed on the application form.  In the case of most building permit applications, this means that building plans and a site plan are also required. Upon submittal of a permit your application will undergo a preliminary review or screening process. During this stage you may be referred to other staff members to determine if your project will require any Planning approvals. Once the criteria for a complete application has been reviewed the application will be converted into a Building Permit and an application fee of ($200) will be required. For further information and details please see the Building - Introduction page or FAQ's page.
