Atlanta’s Department of City Planning Launches Improved, Simpler Permitting Process

May 11, 2023

Recently, the Department of City Planning introduced Phase 1 of a streamlined permitting process offering reduced wait times for permits, a central point of contact, and an improved, user-friendly portal. In this first phase, all permitting customers can submit applications directly into one permitting portal using a menu of application types, links to city maps and ordinances and “how-to guides”.

Customers seeking a permit for apartment complexes, condos and townhomes will no longer be required to use a separate access portal, and applicants will have the ability to create their own record, reducing the steps and time to enter an application into the system.

You can use this link to access more information on the improved permitting process.
