Planning permits

Some projects and activities require planning permits. This is the review process needed to get approval for a project or be allowed to do something.

For certain projects you need planning approval before you can get building permits and start construction. This is also sometimes referred to as the development or entitlement process.

The City of Piedmont has a new online permitting system called eTRAKiT. You can now apply for and track your planning permit online. Paper and email applications for most permit types are no longer be accepted.
