Online Permitting

Our Internet Permitting Request Service is available only to licensed California contractors who have a pre-authorized PIN and frequently perform simple construction projects in Long Beach. If you do not have a pre-authorized PIN and would like to submit online, go to the Building & Safety Bureau landing page and select Online Plan Submittals/Permit Issuances.
