Development Services Fees

Butte County Master Fee Schedule

The Master Fee Schedule (PDF) (effective January 1, 2024) lists the fees of different County Departments/Divisions. Within the Master Fee Schedule, you will find the below fees for Development Services.

Important Please Read: The fees shown for the Building Division do not reflect fees collected on behalf of other departments/divisions that have a role in the process of Building Permits.

Depending on the type and location of each 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.

Due to the complexity of Building Permits, we are working on, but are not yet able to provide a cost estimator. Until then - you may request a Fee Estimate from the Permit Center. The minimum charge is.5 hours at the current adopted Building Division hourly rate.
