Permit Processing

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I need a building permit to add an additional bathroom? How can I obtain a building permit?

A. If it is a commercial building, yes; if it is a residence, no. However, plumbing and electrical permits are always required. The licensed plumber and electrician may apply for their respective permit before the work is initiated. The property owner or designee may apply for the required building permit in person by coming to:

County Office Building
111 West Chesapeake Avenue, Room 100
Towson, Maryland 21204

For additional information and permit fees, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Q. Is a building permit required for a small storage shed in my back yard?

A. If the structure exceeds 120 square feet, a building permit is required.
If it is 120 square feet or less, a permit is not required unless:

  • It will be used for livestock or human occupancy
  • It is located in a designated “Chesapeake Bay Critical Area”
  • It is located in a 100-year floodplain
  • It is located in a “Baltimore County Historic District”

The accessory structure (storage shed) must be in the rear yard, unless a zoning variance is obtained.

If the structure is over 120 square feet, but less than 1,000 square feet, four plot plans are required with the application.

If the structure is over 1,000 square feet, five plot plans and two construction plans are required with the application.

Even if the structure is less than 120 square feet and requires no building permit, it must still meet zoning and environmental protection requirements.

For additional information, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Q. Do I need a building permit to replace my windows and doors?

A. Unless the property is in or part of a historical district, doors may be replaced without a building permit, provided there is no structural work, and the location or size of the door or window does not change. For additional information, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Q. How long does it take to get a building permit after the application is filed?

A. The processing time required before approval and issuance varies for different types of construction projects. Some permits for small projects may be issued the same day. Larger and more detailed construction projects will require review of construction plans and other related issues by one or more different county agencies. For additional information, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Q. How long is my permit valid and can it be extended?

A. Permits are valid for one year with an option to be extended for one additional year at the time the application is filed. If the permit has expired, you will need to file for a new permit. If your permit has not expired or just recently expired, you may request an extension by contacting Building Inspections at 410-887-3953.

Q. How can I schedule an inspection or check on a permit?

A. Use Inspection Connection to schedule, reschedule, or cancel building, plumbing, or electrical inspections, available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Call Permit Processing at 410-887-3900 to check on the status of your permit.

Q. Do I need a building permit for a small addition to a house?

A. Yes, any additions to the house require a permit. For additional information, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Q. When do I need a permit for alterations to a house?

A. A building permit is required for structural work or when a new bedroom or kitchen are created. Permits are not required for siding or roof repair. However, if your house is in or part of a Baltimore County Historical District or is on Baltimore County’s Landmarks List, a building permit is required for any work on the exterior or any work that affects the exterior appearance, including repair or removal of any part of the house, fence or accessory structure. All electrical or plumbing work requires a permit and must be obtained by a licensed electrician and plumber.

A. If you are screening in an existing covered porch or covered deck, a permit is not required, with the exception of historical areas. If you are making a weatherproof enclosure of an existing porch or deck, a permit is required. Enclosing a porch or deck is considered an addition because it extends the “indoor” area of the house and is subject to the same setback limitations as the house itself. For additional information and permit fees, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Q. Do I need a permit to put a fence on my property?

A. All fences over 42 inches high require a permit. Fences 42 inches or less in height do not require a permit unless located in a proposed or designated Baltimore County Historic District or on the Baltimore County Landmarks List.

Q. When is it necessary to have a grading permit?

A. If the proposed grading disturbs over 5,000 square feet of surface area or over 100 cubic yards of fill material is utilized, a permit is required. For additional information and permit fees, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Q. How do I arrange for a percolation test?

A. First, a percolation application must be filled out and submitted to Permits, Approvals and Inspections along with a $60 fee and four copies of a map (scaled 1:100) of the property showing property lines, topography and nearby streams. Once the application has been reviewed and approved by the Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability (EPS), the property owner needs to hire the services of a backhoe operator who will then schedule an appointment to perform the tests with a EPS sanitarian. You may review and\or print the percolation checklist (PDF) online. For additional information and permit fees, contact Permit Processing at 410-887-3900, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Mini Storage Buildings

Your decision to be involved in the self-storage industry with your own mini storage building is one of the best investments of time and money that you may ever make. Since the late 1960’s, when the self-storage industry began, thousands of companies and individuals have discovered this profitable business. However, with increased competition it has become critical to your success to purchase a quality steel frame, mini storage building at the right price.

You may be wondering if this industry is saturated. The answer is absolutely not! While some areas of the country may be overbuilt with such commercial buildings, many communities have a need for additional mini storage building facilities. Consumers’ endless desire to acquire combined with escalating rents that place families and businesses into smaller homes and work areas are increasing the industries customer base. Furthermore, today’s zoning is more “friendly” to self-storage units than ever before.

Despite the great opportunity available in the Mini Storage industry, building mini storage units is a complex and hoping customers will come is a thing of the past. In order to make good decisions, savvy investors consider important items such as feasibility studies, pro-formas as well as controlling construction and operating costs to increase their competitive edge.

Building a Successful Online Home Business

Photo: Ed Yourdon via Flickr

Would you love to run a flexible business from home? Or how about a business you could pop into your handbag and operate from your coffee shop of choice? It s possible. Lots of people have made it happen. All you need is a laptop and a reliable internet service like home internet by Sonic in place. This article, and the infographic below, will help you to think about which business ideas you can use and what you can learn from women who ve made it with their own successful internet business.

Online Business Ideas

There are a number of business ideas you could consider for starters there is online sales of products or services, copywriting, online tutoring, subscription, affiliate marketing and advertising. In fact, most successful online businesses combine more than one income stream.

Fremium

With the rise and rise of fremium it s not always straightforward! Fremium is where you provide a basic service for free. Sometimes everything is free and revenue comes from advertising or affiliate marketing moneysavingexpert.com and most news and information based sites and blogs are funded that way. Alternatively, you could provide a basic product for free and charge for the premium version hubspot, skype and mailchimp do this. The advantage of fremium models is that they allow you to engage a much larger audience.

How they Made it

Let s look at a few women who started from an online home business and have made it big. How did they get started and what can we learn from them?

Single mum Lauren Luke gave up her dead-end job to sell make-up on eBay in 2006. The business quickly took off and Lauren started making home-made YouTube videos to show customers how to apply her products. The videos become a YouTube phenomenon they ve now had over 75 million views. Lauren s personality is a large part of her success she s incredibly down-to-earth, nice and unaffected. She builds real relationships with customers and social media followers and has a natural marketing and customer service instinct. The business continues to boom: Lauren has launched her own make-up range which is on sale in 135 shops in the U.S. See here for a video of Lauren explaining the secrets of her success.

Business model: eBay shop, YouTube advertising and now direct production and high street sales.

Justine Roberts Carrie Longton, Co-Founders Mumsnet

For Carrie and Justine, having young children was the perfect time to start a business. Justine couldn t face going back to work after maternity leave. She met Carrie at antenatal classes and together they developed the idea of an online guide for parents. Mumsnet was born.

But it got off to a tricky start. They were starting in 2000, at the height of the dotcom bubble. Overnight the bubble burst and the advertising-based business model they hoped to entice investors with, fell apart. Instead they began with a small loan from a friend and worked out of a bedroom with no salary for the first few years. The site is now a thriving community of over 6 million parents, with a multi-million pounds turnover.

Business model: Advertising is the largest contributor of income, other growing streams include: surveys and consumer testing, books and events.

Holly Tucker and Sophie Cornish, Notonthehighstreet.com

Holly and Sophie were also mums who decided to start a business together. It started in 2005 around the kitchen table, with Holly s baby there in a playpen. Notonthehighstreet is an online shop front for around 1,800 independent creative businesses. Each partner is carefully selected for quality and originality. Partners pay a fee to be listed on the site and around 20% of each sale. For the first few years the pair poured all of their savings into the business. Since then they have had three successful rounds of venture capital investment. It s a high-growth route that resulted in a turnover of over £15 million in 2010 and 60 staff. VC is a hard-driving growth route, not for the faint hearted. See here for our review of Holly and Sophie s warts and all book about growing their business.

Business Model: Online sales, membership, revenue sharing, printed catalogue.

Where does your business model fit?

Fast Company have created a great infographic of the online business environment. It shows how all of those online business models fit together and how each of them can make money. It s worth bearing in mind though, that while all of the businesses we ve featured started online, all of them now also have growing off-line income streams.

As the first two case studies show, it is possible to grow a successful online business without external investment. But if you need investment, to start or scale, check-out the full range of funding options in our women s business finance guide .

The infographic can help you to decide where your online business best fits for now. But it continues to be a fast changing business environment. A change in the Google algorithm can make or break business models overnight. Last year Google brought in Panda a significant change to their search rankings. Overnight, several commercial sites dependent on affiliate links found themselves downgraded. So if your online business is dependent on Google search and I can think of few that aren t make sure that you keep abreast of their quality guidelines. Quality content is key. Above all, get to know your customers or visitors, provide a quality service and meet their needs.
