City Announces New Online Building Permit Application

Property owners in the City of Franklin, developers and contractors can now apply for building permits online using a cloud-based software called Cloudpermit.

Users can register and apply for a building permit that is specific to the work that is needed, and then check the status of their permits and inspections, schedule or cancel building inspections, request and submit changes to an existing building permit and more.

An email address is required to use the program so the applicant, developer, contractor, inspectors and city staff may communicate with each other.

Information about Cloudpermit is available at the city’s website,, by clicking on the Departments tab, then choosing Code Enforcement and then Building Permits. There are links to videos and other support materials that can help new users of the program.
