Construction/Building Permit

Construction/Building Permits is one of the several services offered by the Ministry of Works, Housing and Infrastructure. The Development Control Section (Building Inspectorate Section) in the Housing division is directly responsible for the implementation of this service. The 1960 Freetown Improvement Act stipulates the mandate and guidelines for issuance and obtaining of Construction/Building Permits. Applications should be submitted to the Chief Building Inspector. The Ministry is in the process of formulating a National Building Code Document with modern international standards that will replace the 1960 Freetown Improvement Act.
