Where can I find the rules on building a garage apartment on my property in the city limits?

F.T. Norton

According to the City of Wilmington website, a building permit is required for the construction of structures, change of building use, demolition, alterations and remodeling, upfits, expansions, accessory structures and mobile homes and new construction/relocation within the city limits.

Although New Hanover County issues all building permits in the City of Wilmington, the Zoning Section must approve building permit applications within city limits prior to their issuance. For more information contact the City of Wilmington Development Services, 305 Chestnut St.,

Wilmington, NC 28401 phone 910.341.3258 or visit http://www.wilmingtonnc.gov/development_services.aspx
