Building Codes

COVID-19 May, 2020 OFFICE HOURS

With Governor Lee’s Mandatory “Stay at Home” order being lifted effective on May 1st, Williamson County will be moving toward a phased reopening of its offices, while continuing to do our part to assist in the protection of the health and safety of our citizens and employees.

Starting Monday, May 4th, and continuing until further notice, Department of Building Codes office hours will be expanded to be open to the public on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday each week, still by appointment only. As such, issuance of in-person permits and the in-person payment of fees associated with the Department of Building Codes (including Privilege Tax and Education Impact Fee) can only be done by appointment. Any business that can be conducted by phone, electronically, or by mail should be conducted in that manner rather than in person.

You may schedule an appointment by calling 615-790-5718, or by contacting the department via the internet at https://www.williamsoncounty-tn.gov/100/Building-Codes.

Department employees will still be available by phone and e-mail on Wednesdays and Fridays, but will not be conducting in-person business at the office during this time. Department staff will continue to make site visits and perform inspections daily.

Office patrons may be asked to wait outside until a Staff member escorts you into the building. Members of the public are requested to wear courtesy masks when conducting business in the County facilities for their own safety and the safety of fellow citizens and our employees.

This process will be reevaluated weekly, with the goal (subject to change depending upon available data) of having the Department office fully open by Monday, June 1st.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation
