TEMPORARY SERVICE CHANGES
DUE TO COVID-19
To protect the public and staff, Building and Development Review Services has implemented temporary service changes. Until further notice, these procedures will be in place:
- Temporary Outdoor Dining Operations
- The BDRS office at 440 Court Street, Clearwater, is accepting permit and development applications via drop-off only. Customer access will be limited to the building's lobby from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. We understand this will impact the overall processing timelines, but staff will respond to requests as quickly as possible. (Contractors may still make permitting and inspection requests online.)
- Inspections will be limited to the exterior of a structure if possible. Interior inspections will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and when deemed necessary, will follow CDC social distancing recommendations between staff and the public.
- Payment of permit and/or application fees will be limited to credit card transactions.
- All public meetings will be held telephonically or virtually.
Building Services provides building permits, building inspections, and code reference for unincorporated Pinellas County and the following communities: Belleair Beach, Belleair Bluffs, Belleair Shore, Indian Rocks Beach, and Oldsmar. All Building Departments in Pinellas County
