For permit applications, please call City Hall.
GETTING A RESIDENTIAL BUILDING PERMIT FROM THE CITY OF CLIFTON TEXAS
A permit application including detailed site drawings of existing buildings and proposed project (proposed structure, fence, roofing, driveway, sidewalk, patio, fence, etc.).
- Show locations of buildings and structures on property and distances between all structures.
- Show all distances between property lines and structures onsite.
- Show all easements and/or alleys on property.
Note: It may take 5 to 7 business days for residential building permits to get approved. City approval may take longer if any “Variances” and/or City Council approvals are required.
Once the City approves plans, the permit fee must be paid and the permit issued, work may begin. Work may not begin until all fees are paid and permits have been issued. Starting work without proper permits may result in fines at the Building Inspector’s discretion.
It is your (homeowner/contractor) responsibility to plan and schedule inspections, not the Building Inspector’s responsibility to manage the progress of your project. The Building Inspector is not available at all times, call ahead at least 24 hours before inspection is needed, to schedule inspection. Failure to have inspections can result in fines and/or not able to issue a Certificate of Occupancy at the Building Inspector’s discretion.
