As New Hanover County begins to rebuild from Hurricane Florence, the county’s Building Safety Department will be issuing emergency repair permits at no charge.
Emergency residential building repairs on a single family residence do not require a permit if the cost is $15,000 or less. However, a permit for electrical, mechanical and/or plumbing work will be required, per the North Carolina Building Code. These trade permits will be given by the county at no cost for damage repairs needed as a result of Hurricane Florence until December 31, 2018.
