Meck County Now Allowing Separate Master Plan Reviews

Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement will now allow homebuilders to to electronically submit their master plans for compliance review prior to the submittal of a specific building permit. This option, which the county implemented quietly a few months back, is one a handful of improvements put into place in the wake of the plan review backlog created by the bungled introduction of the 2011 Residential Code in March. It means builders can have approved master plans on file with the county before they’re needed, reducing the approval time for a new building permit. The process works as follows:

  • The customer submits the electronic master plan through                                  www.e-plan-nc.org.
  • The customer sends an e-mail to RTAC@mecklenburgcountync.gov authorizing Mecklenburg County to charge $435.00 to their contractor account for the advanced review of the master plan.
  • Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement will then deduct the $435.00 and proceed with the plan review.
  • Once the plans are approved the customer will be able to see the master plan PIN from the E-plan-NC Contractor Dashboard.
  • When the first permit application for that PIN is issued the $435.00 will be applied to the total permit fee.

REBIC applauds the Code Enforcement division for offering this service, and will continue to work with the county to find ways to streamline the plan approval process and expedite the issuance of building permits.
