The City of Dunedin has adopted a new Building Permit Fee Schedule effective November 1, 2015.

Below are some of the significant changes:

  • Drastically reduced the number of fee types from more than 130 to less than 20 to simplify calculation and estimation for staff and our customers.
  • Uses a value-based fee structure so fees are assessed on total construction valuation for the project. (This will create a more equitable system so permits fees for smaller projects such as window and door replacements, decks, patios, etc. cost less.)
  • Utilizes combination permitting fees to include all trades under a single permit.
  • Standardized the fee structure for all single-trade permits such as air conditioning and water heater change outs.
  • Eliminated the requirement to pull permits for certain minor projects such as gutters and low-voltage alarm systems.
  • Created nominal flat fees for fence and tent permits.
  • Increased the minimum dollar threshold for permits from $100 to $500.
  • Eliminated the Certificate of Occupancy fee.
