Central Permitting

Welcome to Central Permitting

Central Permitting Division's goal is to provide faster, more accurate processing of applications for building permits while complying with all local land development regulations.

Significant Changes of the Florida Building Code 5th Edition 2014 Effective June 30, 2015

Online Permits
We have an online permitting system Public Access to Permit Applications (PAPA) where contractors are able to obtain simple permits online. View detailed information and instructions. Inspection requests are also available online, but a password will be necessary for you to be able to access these links. Forms to obtain a password as well as instructions for contractors are available.

Pasco County is constantly striving to better protect its environments.  Towards this effort recent changes in our systems may cause some individuals or organizations running Windows XP to experience difficulties.  If for some reason you are affected by these changes please follow the simple instructions below to resolve.

Suspension of impact fees
In March 2011 the Board of County Commissioners adopted an Ordinance to temporarily suspend the collection of the facilities portion of the Park and Recreation, Library, Fire Combat and Rescue, and Hurricane Preparedness impact fees. The initial suspension was in effect through December 2012. A second Ordinance was adopted in December 2012 extending the suspension of these impact fees through December 31, 2013. Effective as of January 1, 2014 that suspension expires and the County will again collect those fees

Impact Fees
Central Permitting is also responsible for assessing and collecting impact fees: transportation, mobility, parks and recreation, libraries, schools, emergency services, hurricane mitigation, as well as the collection of resource recovery fees.

Rules & Regulations
The division assists in the administration of the flood damage prevention rules and regulations.

Preparation of Monthly Reports
Monthly reports prepared by the division include financial spreadsheets, building permits issued per location (New Port Richey, Land O'Lakes and Dade City) sorted by type of construction permitted, housing activity statistics, Permit Values Accumulation Report, Utilities Report of new structures and Health Department Report of building permits issued, which are using septic tank systems. Quarterly reports are prepared for State-mandated RADON collection and Pasco County transportation impact fee agreements.
