The Raleigh development fee guide has been updated and is now available online. Applications submitted for review on or after July , will be subject to the new rates until June 30, 2024.
The Planning and Development department completed a comprehensive review of fees in the past year and on June 13, city council adopted the recommended fees for fiscal year 2024.
While some fees increased, many decreased. Also approved process improvements will allow for staff to spend less time completing certain permit reviews which resulted in lower fees.
Also, the fee guide and a fee calculator is on the City of Raleigh website. The fee calculator can help customers estimate fees for building permits, stormwater, open space, thoroughfares, or right-of-way occupancy.
