Responsibilities & Permit Information
The Building Division of the Development Department is responsible for all construction-related activities, including construction review, permitting, and inspections. The City of New Port Richey requires a permit for most construction activities including (but not limited to):
  • Door replacement
  • Concrete/Paver Driveway
  • Fence New/Replacement

As a homeowner, you may obtain a building permit for work you are doing on your home. However, unless you reside in your home, a licensed contractor must do the work. The following items do not need a permit:

  • Gutter and downspouts repair/replace
  • Installation of water softeners
  • Vinyl siding repair/replace
