§ 106.5.1. Issuance.  

Latest version.
  • The application, plans and specifications, geological or engineering reports and other required data filed by an applicant for a permit shall be checked by the Building Official. Such plans may be reviewed by other departments of the County to verify compliance with the laws and ordinances under their jurisdiction.

    The Building Official shall issue a permit to the applicant for the work described in the application and plans filed therewith when the Building Official is satisfied that all of the following items comply:


    The work described conforms to the requirements of this Code.


    The work described conforms to the requirements of other pertinent laws and ordinances.


    The fees specified by this Code have been paid.


    The applicant has obtained a permit pursuant to Public Resources Code Section 30600 et seq., if such a permit is required.

    When the Building Official issues the permit, the Building Official shall endorse in writing or stamp on the plans and specifications "APPROVED." Such approved plans and specifications shall not be changed, modified or altered without authorization from the Building Official, and all work shall be done in accordance with the approved plans. The issuance of a permit shall not be deemed to certify that the site of the described work is safe.

    The Building Official may issue a permit for the construction of part of a building or structure before the entire plans and specifications for the whole building or structure have been submitted or approved, provided adequate information and detailed statements have been filed complying with all pertinent requirements of this Code. The holder of such permit shall proceed at his or her own risk without assurance that the permit for the entire building or structure will be granted.
