The Building Division's (BD) primary function is to safeguard the life, health, and property of Shasta County residents through the application of uniform building standards. These standards involve design, materials, construction, use, occupancy, and location of all buildings and structures within the unincorporated area of the County. The BD strives to implement these standards in a fair and consistent fashion while maintaining an open dialogue with the various building trades. Plan reviews, permits, and inspections for structural, electrical, plumbing and mechanical as well as miscellaneous items (signs, fences, mobile home or manufactured home setups) are provided through this Division. The BD additionally serves as the code enforcement arm of the Department providing follow-up on all complaints of zoning and building code violations registered with this Division.

General building questions and comments may be emailed to:  Responses may take up to 72 hours.


In an effort to process a high-volume and backlog of existing applications, the Department of Resource Management will be unable to process or accept new permit application submittals on Wednesdays, until further notice.  During this time, our lobby will remain open on Wednesdays for dispensing general information and issuing of permits only.  We apologize for any inconvenience during this time.
