The Building Inspection Department reviews plans, issues permits and performs inspections.  The goal is to provide safe and habitable buildings within the city.  Any questions pertaining to building, storm water, new water and sewer lines should be directed to this department.

Effective July 13, 2016, our adopted codes are: 2015 International Building Code, 2015 International Fire Code, 2015 International Plumbing and Mechanical Codes, and 2010 ADA Accessibility Code.

NOTE -  The TN Department of Health is also responsible for permitting and regulating certain businesses such as:


Food Service Establishments

Public Swimming Pools

Tattoo and/or Body Piercing Establishments


Organized Campgrounds


These type establishments cannot start the building process without first obtaining approval by the Department of Health. Failure to obtain plan approval from the Health Department prior to construction can cost substantial time and money to make necessary corrections.

For more information or to submit plans, please contact the Sevier County Health Department at 865-453-2787 or email , website
