Austin Development Services Department helps homeowners, business owners, and contractors ensure compliance with applicable City and building codes when they build, demolish, remodel, or perform any construction in the City of Austin and when planning special events. Learn more about the development process on our Understanding the Development Process webpage.
We collectively ensure compliant and sustainable development; protect the environment and urban forest; help ensure special events follow safety guidelines; and help homeowners, business owners, contractors, event managers, neighborhood groups, and other area residents understand and apply existing codes. Together, we'll build a better and safer Austin!
As of March 24, 2023, Austin Code consolidated with the Development Services Department.
