Notice of Updates to Our Building Permit Fees and Structure

As we transition to the new fee structure, you may experience service interruptions on the HillsGovHub portal from 5 PM September 8, 2023 to 11:59 PM September 10, 2023.

The Board of County Commissioners recently approved an update to the structure and fees charged for Building Permits. These updates are the result of an extensive study conducted through an independent consultant. This will allow the County to maintain the level of service delivery that our clients expect for years to come. The new fees will also allow for the implementation of additional innovations and enhanced services in the future.

The new fees will be implemented in two phases to ensure compliance with Florida Senate Bill 250. The first phase will go into effect beginning September 9, 2023. The new fees and structure are currently available for review. 

We would also like to extend an invitation to join us for a free live webinar where we will discuss new changes to the fee structure and fee calculations on August 31, 2023 at 11 AM. The session will also be made available on our website for anyone unable to attend. 

If you have any questions, please email Thank you for continuing to trust and partner with Hillsborough County!
