Loudoun County is now accepting building permit and administrative land development applications electronically.

Homeowners and residential contractors can submit their completed application form and supporting documentation, including drawings and plats, in PDF format for most residential construction projects to the Department of Building and Development through the Loudoun County government website. 

Developers, builders, engineers, and architects can also submit most permit and administrative land development applications and plans to the Department of Building and Development online. Accepting applications and project files online is the first step in the county’s multi-phase project to implement electronic review and mark-up of land development plans using cloud-based platforms.

Customers may still submit paper applications and plans, but are encouraged to use online services to reduce the number of visitors in the Government Center and reduce the risks associated with COVID-19.

More information about the online submission process and requirements is available at
