PermitLink is Now Live
Applying for permits in James City County is now easier and more efficient.
PermitLink, a new online system, replaces traditional paperwork and will give you the opportunity to submit requests through a fully automated system. Users can upload plans, schedule inspections, check on plan reviews, receive real time inspection results and respond to comments from County staff. Permit and re-inspection fees can also be made with a credit card or e-check through the secure PermitLink system.
County staff have spent the last few months testing PermitLink and getting everything ready for this significantly improved experience, but as with all new processes there may be a few unexpected issues along the way. Thank you for your patience and understanding during the transition.
