ConcurrentReview DeveloperShakingHandsRetention of One set of Residential Building Plans: Effective June 1, 2017 the City of Raleigh will begin a new practice of retaining

one set of approved residential building plans. Currently, clients are required to submit two sets of residential building plans for review. Once the plans have been approved for permitting the City of Raleigh returns both sets to the contractor. Effective June 1, the City of Raleigh will continue to require two sets of residential building plans however, only one set will be returned to the contractor on record. The other set will be held by the City of Raleigh for records purposes. If the contractor wants more than one set of approved stamped plans then they must provide three sets of plans.


And here is a reminder about a recent change to Final Site and Infrastructure Plan review processes. Concurrent Review for all Site and Infrastructure Approvals: Effective May 1, 2017 all new project submittals requiring site approval will be processed under the concurrent site review path. Concurrent site review is a comprehensive review of all site regulations related to stormwater, public utilities, transportation, fire, urban forestry, planning and zoning.

Look for information in the coming week on new development fees, effective July 1, 2017.
