Building Permits

Permits Required
If you are planning to build a new structure, enlarge or add to an existing structure, or relocate a structure in the corporate limits of the City of Claremore, you may be required to purchase a permit, or several permits, before you can begin work.

Permits are required for additions, expansions, or remodeling projects including:
  • Any remodel involving electrical, mechanical, or plumbing work
  • Changes to plumbing
  • Changing mechanical units (heat and air)
  • Sewer taps
  • Slab or piers
  • Street or curb cuts
  • Upgrading or adding new electrical service
  • Water heaters
A Building Permit Application (PDF) must be completed by the applicant and returned to the Building Inspections Division for review and the tabulation of building fees. The building site plan and 1 copy of the floor plan must be included with the application. All building permits and fees must be paid and building permits approved and posted prior to any construction. Two sets of complete construction plans are to be submitted for all commercial and industrial sites.
