Permitting

 

Chambers County requires permitting for any commercial or residential development.  Permits must be reviewed to ensure compliance with county regulations, including but not limited to Subdivision Regulations, Drainage Criteria, Fire Code, and Environmental Health.  

Steps:

1.  Submit construction application and plans via the online portal at www.mygovernmentonline.org.  Upload your construction plans to the portal, including adequate details and information, so that your project may be reviewed.

2.  Your project must be reviewed for Health/Environmental, Drainage, and Fire Code;

3.  Once approvals are complete, and appropriate fees have been paid, the permit will be issued and may be downloaded via the permitting portal.  Fees may be paid online with credit cared or in-person at the Permit Office, 201 Airport Road, Anahuac, TX.

4.  Commercial projects must be inspected by the Fire Marshal and issued a Certificate of Compliance upon completion, BEFORE the building is occupied.
