Now, let’s say that you’re trying to build an addition to a home in the Vineyards, Berkshire Lakes, Audubon, Grey Oaks, or Orange Tree. Collier County requires that you include drainage plans approved by the developer with the building permit package. If you’re building an addition anywhere in the county, you’ll need to submit a sealed boundary survey with the permit package showing all easements. If you’re installing a septic tank in Collier County though, the Collier County Health Department also needs a copy of the survey now.
By the way, if the building or property isn’t serviced by the Collier County Utilities Division, you must submit a Flow Letter before they’ll issue you a permit.
