Building Inspections


Building Inspections

EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2020, the Granville County Inspection Department will perform fire plan review and inspections for new construction and for upfit projects. The General Contractor will need to submit three (3) sets of plans, along with the building and fire applications, to the Inspections office, located at 122 Williamsboro Street (PO Box 877) in Oxford, to begin the review process. Fire fees will be paid along with the building permit fees. All other related fire marshal inspections and permits will continue to be handled by the Granville County Fire Marshal’s Office, located at 5662 Cornwall Road, Oxford, NC. For questions, please call 919-603-1326.


During Phase 2 of reopening NC we will be opening our doors to limited public access on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.  Only one person will be allowed in our office at a time, so there will most likely be longer wait times.  We are also politely asking that masks are worn.  

We still continue to have our applications and drop box in the hallway.  We are asking that if your permitting needs can be handled through email to please do so.  Most seem to be enjoying that part of it anyway!  We also ask that sub-contractor signoffs are handled with the notarized statements being emailed or dropped off in the drop box.  

We hope this finds each of you well and that you continue to stay well throughout this.  

Thank you for your cooperation during these unchartered times!
