Development Services

This site is designed to assist understanding of the various phases of the Carlsbad land use and construction permitting process including:

Building Facade

Each project is unique and may not require passage through every processing phase. Minor home improvement projects generally do not require land use permits and can proceed directly to design plan review or construction permitting as appropriate.

Project proponents are encouraged to contact Development Services staff to discuss their particular project needs and processing requirements.
