Building Code Forms


The new 2013 Residential Code of Ohio becomes effective on January 1, 2013. Applications for residential projects submitted after January 1st must comply with this new code. If the application was submitted prior to January 1, 2013, then the residential project is still subject to compliance under the 2006 Residential Code of Ohio. For additional information regarding the changes in this new code, please see the handouts available under the “Seminar Handouts” drop-down menu.

A new fee schedule also becomes effective on January 1, 2013. All applications (residential and commercial) that are submitted after January 1, 2013 will be subject to this new fee schedule. The new fee schedule will be posted under the “Building Permit Fees” drop-down menu.

The Licking County Building Code Department is responsible for the enforcement of building codes for all residential and commercial projects throughout the majority of Licking County. We are located in the lower east wing of 675 Price Rd., Newark (old TB Sanitarium). Our office hours are 7:00am to 4:00pm, Monday through Friday. Our office phone number is (740) 349-6671; our office fax number is (740) 349-6672.
If you are interested in performing a residential project, you may need a permit from our office. For a list of residential projects that do or do not require a permit, please see the "Memorandum of Work Requiring a Permit" document under the Building Application of Forms menu. If you are not sure if a permit is required, please contact our office.
Before applying for a permit from our office, you must first obtain a Zoning Certificate from your local Zoning Inspector. If your project is located in a township that does not have zoning enforcement, you must obtain approval from the Licking County Health Department. There are some jurisdictions that have additional notification requirements. Our office has information packets regarding those jurisdictions available in our office and on this website under the “Additional Forms” drop-down menu. For information regarding whom to contact for zoning approval, please click on the “Zoning Contact List” available under Building/Development tab located on the main page.
To submit for a building permit, please provide a completed Application, a copy of the Zoning Certificate (or Health Department Approval for areas without zoning) and construction plans and specifications for the project. If your project is residential, you must submit at least two complete sets of construction plans and specifications. If your project if commercial, you must submit at least three complete sets of construction plans and specifications.
For further explanation of the above, or additional information, please select the appropriate drop-down box located above. These attachments include an Application for Permit, Fee Schedule, various checklists and procedures for obtaining permits and plan approvals, and supplemental handouts that you may find useful.
