**ATTENTION HOMEOWNERS & CONTRACTORS**

**Due to the nature of soils in south Louisiana and their effects regarding foundation settlement issues, it is strongly recommended to consult with a geotechnical engineer about soils testing and a structural engineer/architect regarding proper foundation design for your project.**

Permits are required prior to beginning:

  • any type of construction or remodeling/renovations project,
  • moving a manufactured home, modular, or portable building,
  • installation of electrical wiring, mechanical equipment, plumbing piping, or gas piping,
  • re-roofing, or
  • demolitions.

The permit process can sometimes be frustrating and confusing, so please feel free to contact our office to speak with a permit official by phone at (337) 721-3610 or by e-mail at plandispatch@cppj.net.
