Exterior demolition and relocation permits require review by the Planning Department prior to issuance. Some applications can be approved by Planning staff if the structure is not listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is not over 50 years old, is a small accessory structure, or is deemed hazardous by the Chief Building Official. If a structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places or if it is over 50 years old, the application is forwarded to the Mayor and Commission for a 25 day review, with the possibility of a 90 day review, depending on the structure.
If you would like to discuss a demolition or relocation prior to the approval deadline, please contact the district Commissioner or the contact person for that item.
Please contact Rick Cowick at the Athens-Clarke County Planning Department for information regarding the demolition and relocation review process.
