In Sutter County, you can now fast track a building permit online


To help facilitate the Building Permit process for customers, Sutter County Development Services Department has released an online application that now allows contractors and owner-builders to apply and pay for certain fast-track building permits. A temporary permit is immediately issued. The customer will be notified once an official building permit is available for pick-up from the Development Services Customer Service Counter. An official building permit will need to be in-hand before a building inspection can be scheduled.

Eligible fast-track building permits include the following:
•HVAC change-outs
•Water heater change-outs
•Agricultural electrical meters
•Electric meter upgrades
•Gas line permits
•Siding replacements
•Window replacements
•Re-roof permits
•Residential roof mounted solar less than 10KW

It is important to note that the physical location for the work to be performed must be in the jurisdiction of Sutter County and not located within the City of Yuba City or the City of Live Oak.

Links to the fast-track building permits are under the Online Building Permits section on the Building Services page. You can also find on the Building Services page additional information about building permit requirements.
