Building Division

Any new construction, or any addition, alteration or repair to an existing building requires a building permit. Wiring, plumbing and mechanical installations such as furnaces and wood stoves also require the issuance of appropriate permits before the work is performed. Once work is underway, permit holders are required to call for inspection of the work at various stages of the project.

The Building Division issues permits and performs inspections for all of unincorporated Lincoln County and for the cities of Depoe Bay, Siletz, Toledo, Waldport and Yachats.

If you are planning new construction, or remodeling work on an existing building, please contact the Building Division to determine the appropriate permits that will be required for your project. See how to apply for permits, requirements for building plans, and required inspections.

See the Lincoln County Code: Chapter 3: Building Code
