The classic DCD permit application is still available for all permits as we continue to develop the new system. In the future, the new portal will be the only method for submitting all applications.
A "basic" building plan is a single-family house design that has been pre-approved by the Department of Community Development for construction, allowing a builder to construct Single Family Residences, Duplexes, or detached garages of the same design (with options) on multiple parcels and receive a condensed review process.
The Kitsap County Basic process is done in two steps, Establishing your Basic Plans and then Using an Approved Basic Plan. See the details below.
Step 1: Begin with the Establishing a Basic Questionnaire to begin the preparation of your online application.
Online permit forms are fillable PDFs, so questions are answered directly on the web-based form
This form will have guiding questions, as a result, your answers may determine further
possible requirements for your project
Once you are done with your Online Permit Form click
Or you can click to receive an email with a link to resume later
Be sure to include all plan options at time of submittal, because this permit type does not allow for revisions or changes. Example: Elevation options = Elevation A and Elevation B, Room Layout, Skylights, House Reversals (mirror-image)
Step 2: Prepare and gather all required submittal items electronically, and save on your computer or thumb drive. Please name files simply and accurately, indicating what the file is in the file name. Example: Site Plan, Construction Plans, Floor Plans, etc.
Step 3: Apply for your permit in the Online Permit Center
Step 1: You will follow the same process you used for Establishing your basic plan, but instead, begin with the Using an Approved Basic Questionnaire to begin the preparation of your online application.
Construction Plans, Engineered Plans, Engineered Calculations, and Energy Code Worksheet (unless modified) do not need to be provided by applicant, DCD will attach these items to your permit from the approved basic permit.
Step 3: Apply for Using an Approved Basic Plan at the Online Permit Center
