Small Business Permit Process Guidance

Depending on the project, a small business that is building or up-fitting a facility may be required to obtain numerous permits.

New construction may require rezoning of the property. Existing facilities may require minor site plan approval for certain renovations or expansions. Building modifications or new construction will require a building permit. Even sign installations require a sign permit.

Chesterfield Economic Development offers guidance to small businesses going through the permitting processes. Our Small Business Development Assistant will help identify which approvals are required for a particular project.

Our project manager will go through the entire process with small business owners and their contractors.  They will make sure all the required permits are in place when the business is ready to occupy the facility.
