The Yuba County Building Department is an integral part of CDSA that combines building and construction services with code enforcement activities to safeguard public health, safety and general welfare of the communities it serves within the County. We are responsible for application intake, plan-check, permit issuance and inspection for all buildings and structures, existing or new, within the unincorporated area of the County. Building and Construction Services is the local enforcing authority for regulations promulgated by the State of California Building Standard Commission which are codified in Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations. These regulations set the minimum requirements to create safe, healthy, and accessible buildings. The regulations also provide safety to fire fighters and emergency responders during emergency operations and protect our natural resources by making buildings energy efficient and sustainable. Before commencing construction, repair or making any alterations, please confer with the Building Department to make certain that the project conforms to current building and zoning codes and that the proper permits are obtained.
