Non-structural and structural building applications are reviewed by the Building Department. Applications that require a variance will go before our own Zoning Board and the time frame for zoning board review is approximately one month after denial of your building application.
All new construction or alterations, which are undertaken in the Village of Atlantic Beach, will require a building permit (painting and wall covering only items which do not require a permit). This includes not only structural construction, but also such things as window and door replacements (same size), roofing, fencing, wood decking below 8 ¼”, sidewalks, curbs, aprons, curb cuts – must be installed or replaced per Village specifications. Enclosed storage containers or PODS require a permit. Before starting any work, please call the Village Office for information and come into the Village Office and apply for a permit.
