Permit Process

Permit Submission

City Hall is back open to the public. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.

Small permit packages, such as fence, mechanical, and roofing can be emailed in to:  buildingpermits@westmelbourne.org

Permits that do have large plans, such as screen rooms, windows/doors/shutters, solar, or new builds, will need to be dropped off or mailed in to City Hall. 

See below for the current, fill-able applications. All applications need to be signed and notarized by the property owner and the qualifier. A contract or estimate signed by the property owner can be used in lieu of a notarized signature on the application.

There is a drop basket at the front counter of the Building Department. Permits will be processed the day after drop off.

Please call (321) 837-7776 with any questions or concerns regarding permitting.
