A contractor or permit holder schedules the applicable inspection(s) for a construction project, identified by its permit number. To schedule an inspection, call (805) 781-5601 any time before midnight for an inspection on the following workday.
You can also use the Department of Planning & Building' Citizen Self-Service (CSS) portal to schedule an inspection online.
You must have your permit number and the inspection code for the type of inspection you want. You can find the inspection code on the list given to you when your permit was issued. To find out the approximate time of your inspection, you may call your building inspector between 7:30 AM and 8:30 AM the day it is scheduled. When possible, your inspector will try to accommodate your request for a morning or afternoon inspection. If the road or driveway to your building site is gated, be sure to leave the gate unlocked the day an inspection is scheduled.
