City of Lavon


Commercial Permit Requirements

The City of Lavon has adopted the 2012 International Building Code and 2011 International Electric Code. We require contractor and subcontractors, including trades, to be registered with the City (see contractor registration).

Applications for Commercial Building Permits must include:

1. A completed City of Lavon Permit Application*; and
2. One (1) PDF set of construction plans; and
3. Three (3) sets of printed construction plans (please print on 24 in. x 36 in. paper); and
4. Three (3) sets of Landscape plans (please print on 24 in. x 36 in. paper); and
5. One (1) set of site plans (please print on 24 in. x 36 in. paper).
6. A storm water drainage study may be required.

For calculating building valuations, the city uses the most current the International Code Council Building Valuation Data (formerly the Southern Building Code Congress International Inc.)

* Before a permit will be issued, the contractor must completely fill out the application, list all sub contractors, be current on all fees and all subs must be registered with the City.
