Permit Applications and Information

The City of Knoxville is transitioning to an online permitting system and phasing out the paper applications. As online applications are opened up, the paper version will no longer be available. For those with limited or no internet access, there is a public kiosk at the front desk in City Hall for online permit applications. Links to online permit applications will take you to the Schneider Permits website, please see the help document for additional information. ***The City of Knoxville is not set up to accept Contractor accounts. Please create a regular user account.***

Please be aware, it can take 3-5 business days or longer to process an application, depending on the type of permit and other circumstances. It is unlikely that the City will be able to process and approve a permit the day it is turned in. Keep this in mind when planning a project requiring a permit application. All applicable information must be filled out, or it may result in delayed processing.
