Do I need a permit to replacement my driveway in Palatine?

Yes, the village of Palatine like most villages requires homeowners to obtain a permit before any work can begin.  The good news is that getting a permit for a concrete driveway in Palatine is not too difficult.  Below is the process for obtaining your concrete driveway permit.

  1. You first need to find your plat of survey. This document is required when submitting a concrete driveway, walkway and patio permit.  Make three copies of the survey and highlight the area of your driveway that will be replaced on each copy.
  2. Next, bring your three copies of the plat of survey and a copy of your contract which you should have received from your contractor to the village of Palatine Building Department Office.
  3. If your driveway is getting replaced at the same size with no changes, you should be able to get an express permit which means it should get approved the same day. Palatine is one of a few villages that does this.  It’s great!  If you are making changes or doing more than a driveway, you will need to drop it off and it may take a few weeks for approval. You can download the Palatine Driveway Permit Application Here.
  4. Once you have an approved permit in hand, post it in your front window once your contractor arrives to start your project. A professional concrete contractor should then handle it from there.  The contractor will call in the pre-pour inspection and work with the village on any issues or concerns.
  5. Once your concrete driveway has been poured and the forms removed, you or the contractor can now call in for the final inspection.
