- Submit a Zoning Permit from the County or the Town of Taylorsville. Zoning Permits are required for any new structure, addition or remodeling projects. The Zoning Permit includes the type and size of proposed use (example: single-family dwelling, manufactured home, commercial building). If the structure is a manufactured home, the applicant must also complete a Manufactured Home Permit (county only). For county permits, a site plan should be submitted. The plan must show the property lines in relation to: Existing and proposed structures; Dimensions of existing and proposed structures; Distances between existing and proposed structures; and Distances from all existing and proposed structures to the front, rear and side property lines. All county Zoning Permits issued will expire six (6) months after the approval date, if work has not started on the property.
- Following zoning approval, complete an Improvement & Operations Permit with the Environmental Health Division. An Environmental Health Specialist will work with the applicant in the review and installation of individual or community water and septic systems. The Improvement Permit cannot be issued without a Zoning Compliance Permit. For more information regarding Improvement & Operations Permits, please contact Environmental Health at 632-1000, extension 311. Environmental Health will collect fees for the Improvement & Operations Permit.
- Following zoning and Improvement Permit approval, submit a Permit Application. The Permit Application cannot be issued without approval of the Zoning Permit and Improvement Permit. Permit Applications for site-built structures, additions or remodeling must be submitted with two (2) sets of plans.

Also, when necessary, a final inspection may be disapproved and a Certificate of Occupancy withheld until the violation is corrected.
