Planning & Community Development Appointment Types Available 

EXCITING UPDATE! Beginning January 1st 2022, appointments will no longer be required to submit Building Permit or Land Use applications!* 

The new process will be as follows:

  1. The applicant will email either a Building Permit Applicationor a Land Use Application form to permittingsubmittal@bainbridgewa.gov requesting a case number.
  2. A Permit Specialist will use the information on the application provided to create a file with a case number.**
  3. Once the file is created, a Permit Specialist will email the applicant with their assigned case number as well as an access code for the online permit portal.
  4. The applicant will upload all required initial documents via the online permit portal.
  5. Once all required initial documents are uploaded, an invoice will be sent to the applicant.
  6. Once the invoice is paid, the application will be considered “submitted” and will be forwarded to the appropriate queue for review.***

This new process is intended to mimic the online application process. We are working to move ALL application submittals to the portal in the future.

*Consultations and 15-minute Q&A’s will still be available for online appointments. 

**Every effort will be made to respond with a case number within 2 business days of receipt of an appropriate and complete application. 

***Further information may be requested/required depending on the results of the review process.
