Permitting Process

Effective Friday, September 16, 2022, Fulton County development permitting team will not be permitting and inspecting any sewer projects within the city limits of Atlanta, College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Palmetto, and Tyrone. Since we are not permitting and inspecting any sewer projects within their city limits, we should not charge sewer impact fees either for these six (6) municipalities.

In regards to Union City for all new projects that are located within the city limits of Union City regardless of the size of the sewer, we are only to permit and inspect sewer projects when we receive a letter from Union City indicating that they are aware of the project and permitting can be executed by Fulton County.”

Effective March 23, 2020, the development permitting review process has been modified and Fulton County will only accept electronic submissions. Please contact Mr. Damascus Rutledge at 404-612 2903 to obtain necessary log-in application or download from the forms section below.

Please electronically submit Plan Review Log-In Application, and construction plans (cover sheet, utilities – water/sewer related and profiles sheets) to Damascus.Rutledge@fultoncountyga.gov, or provide a digital link to access construction plans. Only credit card payments will be accepted.
