How to Obtain a Zoning or Use Registration Permit

Zoning permits permit the proposed structure, site improvement, construction, or sign.

Use registration permits permit the proposed land use.

Zoning permits and use registration permits can be obtained from the Department of Licenses and Inspection, located on the ground floor of
the Municipal Services Building.

Filling out an application for a permit requires knowledge and experience regarding Philadelphia zoning law so as to ensure that the property is
approved for a broad range of uses without the application getting rejected. Before applying, consider hiring an experienced zoning attorney.
