The ePlan electronic plans review system will be the exclusive method for plans submission, review, and approval for Contractors, Architects, and Engineers beginning March 15th, 2017. Only digital format plans submitted through the ePlan solution are accepted. Paper plans for site plans and permits requiring signed and sealed drawings, as well as contractor-submitted plans for fences and signs, will no longer be accepted.
For homeowners applying as owner-builders (no contractor), the City of Lakeland recommends that you contact the Building Inspection office to get the information needed to apply for a permit. Building Inspection can be reached at (863) 834-6012.
Contractors, along with design professionals, please know that our staff is dedicated to helping you make a smooth transition to electronic plan submission. Group and one-on-one training is available free of charge.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule training or visit ePlan help for assistance and for more information.
