About Development Services

We assist homeowners, business owners, and contractors when they build, demolish, remodel or perform any type of construction to ensure compliance with applicable city and building codes. Every development project is unique and will have different requirements, that's why we are here to help you. Together, we'll build a better and safer Austin!


The Development Process

Development in the City of Austin begins with your vision for using a piece of property. You then bring that vision to the City to confirm that your plans meet safety, sustainability, and zoning regulations. Once your plans are approved, you obtain the required permits and build the project with successful inspections along the way.
