Building & Zoning
Kettering’s Planning and Development Department provides “one-stop shopping” for all building- and zoning-related projects. Before starting your design, we recommend you first start with a review of the zoning rules for your project then review the detailed building code requirements. Unless the Planning Commission or Board of Zoning Appeals is required, all construction projects automatically undergo simultaneous building and zoning review and only require a single application with the appropriate design documents.
Additional permits, usually secured by subcontractors, may also be required for items such as signage, mechanical, gas, electrical, plumbing or fire protection systems.
How Do I Apply for a Permit?
You can apply for a construction or zoning permit anytime online using our 24/7 Access Kettering tool or you may apply in person at the Planning and Development Department.
