Planning Department Launches New Permits and Inspections Online Permitting System

Monday, August 22, 2011

The City of Virginia Beach Permits and Inspections Office is excited to announce a new online Permitting System, featuring Accela Automation.  This new, enhanced automation permitting system will enable customers to obtain permits for simple projects, schedule inspections, view inspection results, and authorize a credit card payment — all online. 


The web-based system provides 24/7 customer service and will go live Monday, Sept. 12.  The existing system will be out of service beginning close of business on Thursday, Sept. 8.  To schedule an inspection on Friday, Sept 9 for Monday, September 12, please contact the office at (757) 385-4211, using option 4.
