Welcome to the City of Burlington's Online Permitting and Licensing Portal
While we are still here to assist if you need it, this Portal allows you to accomplish everything from the comfort of your home or office. Some permits still require an application to be filled out and submitted online. (You will be prompted where documents need to be filled out and uploaded).
If you are working on behalf of a company, please stop and contact us at 336-222-5080 for Inspections or 336-222-5110 for Planning, for an access code prior to creating your account.
Note: Please avoid uploading digitally signed or protected PDF's.
All inspections requested before 4 pm will be scheduled the following business day. Any inspections scheduled after 4 pm will be scheduled 2 business days from the date of request.
Inspections Refund Policy:
Business licenses are no longer required or issued by the City of Burlington, with the exception of business selling beer/wine or taxi-cab services. Please contact the Tax Department at 336-222-5120.
