DSD’s Permit Application Center (PAC) is located at 161 South Charlotte Street and open Monday to Friday from 8:30 am – 5:00 pm (closed on public holidays). Customers can also contact PAC@ashevillenc.gov or 828-259-5846 with questions about residential permits.

Note that permit applications and application packages must be complete before submitting to DSD. Incompleteness will add time to the review and approval process. Plans and documents sized larger than 11″ x 17″ should be submitted in digital .PDF format through the Development Portal or on a thumb drive.

Before beginning an application, please check to confirm that your property is located in the City of Asheville’s permitting jurisdiction.
