How do I apply for a permit?

We now have an online application system called CSS (Customer Self-Service).

  • Register for an account (top right hand side of page, click on "Guest")
    Register CSS 22.08.23
  • You will be sent a registration email - if you do not recieve the email please check your spam/junk folder. 
    If you still do not recieve the email within a day, please email us and let us know at: ComDev.Info@CityofBG.org
  • For permits requiring plans - you will need to submit a digital copy on CSS and one physical plan delivered to our office. 
    Please include the permit number assigned to your project when you bring in or mail physical copies to the address under "Contact Us".
  • Please visit our Building Application page for more information on application types and submittal requirements.
