Planning & Development

Inspection Services would like to help you with your To Do list!

booksThe City of High Point Inspection Services Division offers a call-in permit system. This is for credit card customers (Visa, Master Card and Discover). This system enables callers to receive plumbing, mechanical and electrical permits over the telephone during our normal business hours and immediately receive their permit numbers.

Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. However, the Development Services Center (Permit Center) hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily. You may call the permit line at (336) 883-3151 and a permit specialist will be available to write your permit and assign you a permit number.

If you prefer to fax in your requests or if you have more than three permits to request, we will continue to receive requests for permits via fax. These permits will be processed as soon as possible within the next 24 hours. Our fax line is 336-883-8518.

If you have any questions or experience any problems using this service, please contact our Development Review Supervisor at (336) 883-3336.

Helpful Hints

  1. Be sure to have all information in front of you when calling in for permits in order to assist us in processing calls as quickly as possible.
  2. A maximum of 3 permits will be written per phone call. If you have more than three permits to request, please fax in your requests to (336) 883-8518.
  3. On new construction, the building permit must be issued before any trade permits may be written. On commercial incremental permits, check with the general contractor before requesting any trade permits to assure that plans for all trades have been reviewed.
  4. If you call during peak periods of activity, it may take longer to process your call.
  5. Be sure that your City of High Point Privilege License is active.
  6. If possible, relay fixture information from our prepared fixture lists. See fee schedule at
