Requirements, Permits, and Fees

The Clay County Planning & Zoning Department requires permits and inspections for almost all types of construction. Please contuct us at (816) 407-3388 or E-mail to find out if a specific project requires a permit. Due to limited department staff and the frequency of scheduled inspections, appointments must be made with the Building Official to obtain a Building Permit ("BP"). In most cases, drop-in permits are not possible.

Please contact the Building Official or the Director of the Planning & Zoning Department for further details at (816) 407-3388 or E-mail.
