The Planning Department Staff operates in three offices located throughout Dare County. They are responsible for land-use planning and enforcement of state building codes in the unincorporated portions of Dare County. This service area includes Colington, Hatteras Island, Martin's Point, the mainland portions of Dare County, and areas of Roanoke Island outside the Manteo town limits. The Dare County Building Inspectors also provide inspection services for the Towns of Southern Shores and Manteo under a contracted services agreement with the Town.
The Dare County Building Inspectors are responsible for conducting building inspections and the issuance of building permits. These must be obtained from the appropriate inspection office for the geographical location of the construction project. Sub-permits for mechanical, plumbing, or electrical work may be obtained at any of the offices regardless of the construction location.
