How to Apply for Site Development Permits

There are two options for submitting for a site development permit in the City of Savannah. 

  1. Traditional Paper Submittal
  2. Electronic PDF Submittal (available October 1, 2014)


For projects with one acre or more of disturbed area, a Georgia Coastal Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC) approval (formerly called NRCS approval) of the soil erosion and sedimentation plans must be obtained and a copy of the approval submitted to the City prior to issuance of the site permit.  An application must be made to the GSWCC directly. Contact their office at  or (912)459-2070 for more information.
