  • Fire protection system permits
  • Mechanical license
  • Plumbing/gas permit
  • Land Disturbing Activity Permit (ALD)
  • Periodic inspection of elevators
  • Cross-Connection Check Report

“Building, business, and land-disturbing activity permits included in this phase of Arlington permits are among the most frequently submitted permits, bringing us that much closer to having all permits under one system in line,” said the Arlington County Department of Community Planning, Housing. and director of development Claude Williamson. “These changes will bring more consistency to the licensing process for county residents and businesses.”

Permit Arlington was launched in 2019 to improve the customer experience for permitting, construction and land development services. Since then, many permits have moved from paper applications and in-person payments to the online system, eliminating the need for customers to visit county offices to complete these transactions.
