Do I need a building permit to build/put up an accessory building such as a shed, carport, or garage?
If the dimensions of a shed, carport or garage are 12 feet or greater, then a zoning permit and building permit are required. All setback requirements must still be met regardless of whether a permit is required. Building and Zoning Codes are subject to change so please verify by contacting our office at 704-736-8930.
