Planning Department Delays Launch of New Permitting System

Monday, September 12, 2011

The City of Virginia Beach Permits and Inspections Office has experienced a technical hurdle that has led to delaying the launch of the new permitting system. For more than 20 years, an automated permitting system has supported the building construction industry in Virginia Beach.  Final testing of the new system exposed unacceptable inconveniences to these customers. The delay is in the best interest of protecting the public.


The new system will go live Monday, Oct. 10.  The existing system will be out of service beginning at the close of business Thursday, Oct. 6.  To schedule an inspection on Friday, Oct. 7, for Monday, Oct. 10, please contact the office at (757) 385-4211, using option 4.


For more information on this system, contact Cheri Hainer in the Planning Department at (757) 385-4211 or visit
