Permit Applications 

The Loudoun County Fire Prevention Code determines when a permit is required and the required fee schedule. Permits are valid for the designated period on the issued permit. Permits may not be transferred to a different facility or owner and must be renewed upon expiration.

The Fire Prevention Code has been revised and many of the code references have changed. We will be capturing all activities that require a permit but only charging for the highest amount. Exception: fees for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), explosives, and fireworks are cumulative. Therefore, please provide the description and reference number for all of the activities that require a permit use. 

Once the application is received it will be processed and assigned to an Inspector. Please allow 10 business days’ notice prior to an Inspector scheduling or inspecting your facility or property. Upon satisfactory findings, they will issue the permit.
