Driveway Permits

In unincorporated Clay County: 

All driveway entrances require a permit. A driveway permit is required:

  • before a building permit will be issued, and
  • before an existing driveway can be moved, and
  • before the construction of a new driveway entrance.

Prior to issuing a driveway permit, the property is inspected to determine:

  1. Driveway location based on safety/sight distance parameters, and
  2. whether a culvert is required. If a culvert is necessary, the required culvert size is detailed on the permit.

The property owner is responsible for the installation and maintenance of the driveway and driveway culvert.

A driveway permit is good for the location specified and carries over from property owner to property owner.
