New Permitting Program
Iredell County Development Services has made the transition to our new permitting and inspection software. The transition took longer than we anticipated and we have over a week’s worth of permits, inspection results and other data which was issued or processed between 10-28-2013 and 11-5-2013, which has to be manually entered into the new software. We are working as quickly as possible to complete this process, however until this data is entered we cannot schedule inspections or enter results for these projects. We apologize for any delays or inconvenience this may cause. Please bear with our staff as we work to complete this project. Once this process is completed and a few other issues are corrected I believe you will find that this transition will allow us to serve you better in the future. Thank you in advance for your understanding, patience and cooperation.
Our mission is to protect and promote the health, safety, and general welfare of our citizens through the implementation of stainable land use and planning principles, sound administration of the 2030 Horizon Plan and enforcement of the Iredell County Land Development Code.
The award-winning Iredell County Planning Division has a staff of ten (10) professionals who provide public services related to land development activities. Functions of the department include current and long-range planning, subdivision of property, sedimentation and erosion control, Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis, and multimodal transportation efforts. Department employees also serve as staff support and technical advisors to the Iredell County Board of Commissioners as well as several other Iredell County boards, including the Planning Board, Board of Adjustment, and Farmland Preservation Board.
The Department predominantly serves citizens and enforces land development regulations within the unincorporated areas of the county not located within a town or city. However, staff in the department proactively engages with each municipality within Iredell County as well as numerous other counties, cities, and agencies within this region of the State to ensure that Iredell County citizens and officials are represented in efforts that may affect the county.
