If you are looking to create jobs, talk with us. We process Building Permits including Plan Review, Inspections and coordination with other agencies to issue Permits. We process Development Applications including environmental review, provide zoning information and support long-range planning through the County’s General Plan. Code Enforcement responds to Building, Land Use, Abandoned Vehicles, Noise, Nuisance Abatement and the County’s Restrictions on Cultivation of Medical Marijuana Ordinance complaints.

Fees

Butte County Master Fee Schedule

The Master Fee Schedule lists the fees of different County Departments/Divisions. Within the Master Fee Schedule you will find the below fees for Development Services. 

Development Services – Building Division (Pages 13-24) 
Development Services – Planning Division (Pages 25-27)

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: The fees shown for Planning and Building do not reflect fees collected on behalf of other departments/divisions who have a role in the process of Planning Projects and/or Building Permits. 

Depending on the type and location of each project/permit – there may be fees from Agriculture, County Clerk-Recorder, Fire, Land Development/Public Works, and Environmental Health; as well as Impact Fees, drainage fees, etc. Additionally, there may also be school fees and parks and recreation fees. 

Planning has a more comprehensive spreadsheet posted to indicate the fees charged by others for the processing of different Project Types. Due to the complexity of Building Permits, we are working on, but not yet able to provide a cost estimator. Until then – you may request a FREE FEE ESTIMATE from the Permit Center.
