The City of Westminster Building Division offers a walk-through plan review and permit process for minor residential construction projects. In most cases, this process allows contractors and homeowners to obtain permits for small projects during the walk-through, rather than wait the normal review time of two to four weeks.

The walk-through is restricted to:

Decks
Carports
Patio covers
Basement finishes
Detached garages
Storage sheds
Simple interior remodels
Structural repairs
Fire repairs
Fireplaces
Hot tubs
Gas pipe plan reviews
Similar small projects

New home construction, additions, sunrooms, larger interior remodels, photovoltaic systems,or commercial projects will NOT be included in this process. This service is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Walk-through hours are as follows:

Mondays. 1 -5 p.m.

Thursdays, 8 a.m. to noon

See the walk-through plan check list from more information.
