Building Codes


The City of Midlothian has implemented MyGov, an online software program that enables citizens and registered contractors to access building permit information, schedule inspections, and see the status of their projects.  Please view the MyGov Information Sheet for instructions on the program.  All inspections must be submitted through MyGov.  If you are unable to access the Internet, a kiosk is provided in the Development Services lobby during regular business hours for your use. 


Building permits must be obtained prior to making any improvements or alterations to a property.  Click here for a few examples of some of the permits required.  If you have any questions if your project will require a permit, please contact us.  Handouts, forms, and permit applications may be downloaded here.

Contractor Registration

Contractors must be registered with the City in order to obtain a permit.  There is no fee to register.  Registration may be completed in person, email, fax, or through MyGov. Please have a picture ID, insurance, and appropriate license available when registering.
