Do I need a permit?

Please note that just because your mailing address is Las Vegas does not mean you are in city limits for permits. To determine whether or not you are in our jurisdiction, please check your address at www.lasvegasnevada.gov/citylimits.


To determine whether or not you need a permit, please start at https://www.lasvegasnevada.gov/Business/Permits-Licenses/Building-Permits for information and resources.


We recommend using Google Chrome as the internet browser when using any of our Building & Safety web pages.


Any permit that is not on our list of online permits, requires plans through our Dashboard. To submit plans electronically for review, visit www.lasvegasnevada.gov/dashboard.


Please note that since 2019, all plans must be submitted electronically for permits to Building & Safety. All files must be submitted as a PDF on our website. For other requirements and information about electronic submittals, please visit our Building & Safety Resources at www.lasvegasnevada.gov/BuildingForms.

Since each zoning varies by location, please contact our Planning team at 702-229-6251 If you have zoning questions.
