Building Department

The Town of Bennett recently implemented a new system for issuing Building Permits. You must first create an account. Instructions for how to do so can be found here.

Building Permits

New construction permits requires an appointment. Please email for an appointment. 

The Town of Bennett is pleased to offer a "One Stop" building permit for certain projects. If you have questions if you need a permit you can download the handout below or watch this video

Homeowner Permit Information

Once payment has been received, a receipt, permit and permit card will be completed and work may commence.

Failure to obtain a permit prior to beginning work will result in the permit fees doubling.

Permit Fee Information

Please see the Town of Bennett Schedule of Fees for typical fees associated with obtaining a building permit from the Town of Bennett. Please note, however, each project is specific and final fees are not determined until a complete building permit application has been submitted and reviewed by Town staff.

Typical taxes associated with building permits:

  • 2% Use Tax which is calculated based on half of the total valuation of the project
  • 0.25% Arapahoe County open space sales & use tax which is calculated based on half of the total valuation for the projects within Arapahoe County.

Many building permits require a detailed plan before your permit will be approved. We have some helpful guides to our most common building projects.
