Guide & Permits
When a construction permit application is submitted to the RMA - Building Services for plan check, the EHB is routed a copy for review and approval. We use the Accela permit tracking website to update the status of the application and notify Building Services when the permit has been approved by EHB.

This brochure is designed to give the general public an introduction to the permit process involving Environmental Health Review Services (EHRS) of the Environmental Health Bureau (EHB). This guide gives you an overview and can help you successfully navigate Environmental Health planning and construction permit review as well as onsite wastewater treatment system permit processes.
Planning permit applications are routed by RMA-Planning Department to EHB for review and recommendations. The overall planning permit process is very well detailed on the Planning Department’s website. When contemplating a project it is important to speak with a land use technician before contacting EHB to determine what the site development requirements are and what the zoning will allow on your project site.
Find information on your current planning or construction project status by visiting the County of Monterey Resource Management Agency Online Construction Permit Information Website.
