The Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code requires permits for all new construction, additions, alterations/remodeling, demolition, change of uses, and work not specifically exempted by the code.  The Warren County Erosion & Sediment Control Ordinance also requires an approved Erosion and Sediment Control Plan and a Land Disturbing Permit for all land disturbing activities over 10,000 square feet.  An Agreement in Lieu of a Land Disturbing Permit may be submitted for a single site development of a new single family dwelling.

Normal repairs and maintenance work such as:  painting, dry wall repair, minor roof repair, replacing cabinets or fixtures is not required to have a permit.  Please see the link below for Frequently Asked Questions or call our office at (540) 636-9973 for any questions on required permits.
