The single resource for all city permits and licenses

At the City of New Orleans' One Stop Shop, information on all permits, licenses, and City Planning Commission actions have been brought into single place. In order to simplify what have been as complicated and difficult processes, we have broken down the barriers between departments. Here you will find information on all activities regulated by the City in a citizen-focused format. Each application along with required materials are described fully so that you can be prepared to apply. We have even included other approvals that could be required based on your unique situation.

Whether you are looking to build a house or repair one, start a business or renew a business license, host a special event or sell at one, this is your one place to start.

Note: Effective February 1, 2018 the City of New Orleans will adopt the following updated building codes: IBC 2015, IRC 2015, IMC 2015, and NEC 2014.
