Plan Submittals and Permits

The Westminster Fire Department requires permits and plan submittals for new construction, significant building alterations, tenant finishes, fire suppression/sprinkler systems, fire alarm systems, hood systems, and other large projects that affect public safety from fire or hazardous materials. Permits are also required for special events such as block parties, carnivals, use of tents and/or canopies exceeding 400 square feet, etc.

As of December 14, 2016, the Westminster Fire Department, as well as the City of Westminster Building Division, transitioned to electronic plan review and permitting. There are a variety of services that can be provided through this online program including:

  • Electronic Plan Submission
  • Application Materials
  • Review Staff Comments
  • Pay By Credit Card
  • Print Your Permits

To submit an application for a permit, please use the portal for the city's online permit manager.


After the construction permit has been received and the work for the permit has been completed, it will require an inspection from our Fire Department Inspector.

To schedule an inspection, please call 303-658-4551.
