Permitting is not just about code requirements, but to also ensure the safety of your family and your property. Before you tackle any projects check to see if the project requires a permit.
Examples: removing trees, building a shed, addition to your home, may all require permits.

With the help of grant funding from the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, Kitsap County DCD has put together a land use and development basics series intended to help you understand some of the steps involved in building or developing land. These have taken place in the form of webinars given by our DCD staff and are available for viewing on our Start Here! page. Also available on the page are brochures, and links to Start Here! Ambassadors, who are professionals that have participated in the program.
