Permitting & Review Processes

In an effort to improve the existing interdepartmental permit coordination program, simplify the preliminary permit application process, and provide more comprehensive information to applicants, the Department of Planning and Development (DPD) made the following changes to Seattles permitting and review process, effective July 1, 2008:

  • Construction Projects: For all projects that involve new structures, applicants will receive a Preliminary Assessment Report (PAR).
  • IDT issues: DPD eliminated the requirement for an applicant to identify interdepartmental issues.
  • Opt-Out Program and Right-of-Way Analysis: The SDOT Opt-Out program and fee for right-of-way preliminary analysis is no longer in effect.

Tools in this section include:
Preliminary Assessment Report
Permits
Design Review
Inspections
