In Development Services we review plans and issue permits for construction projects and land uses. The permit process includes the permit application, plan review, contractor approval and inspections.

If you have never applied for a permit with the City of Bellevue, our Getting Started page provides guidance, including a permitting and plan review guide with step-by-step instructions on permitting, plan review, hiring a contractor and inspection requirements.

A Predevelopment Services Review offers assistance early in the development process so you can receive help and feedback with your project before submitting a permit application.

If you are still unsure how to proceed, please contact our permit center. City staff will answer all your questions and work with you throughout the permit and plan review process.
