Do I Need a Permit?

A permit is required before starting any construction located on property within the city limits.

Activities requiring permits are listed in the following:

  • New construction (commercial and residential)
  • Remodels (relocation or removal of interior walls, and/or electrical, mechanical, or plumbing)
  • Additions to existing structures
  • Accessory buildings and structures
  • Swimming pools
  • Driveways/culverts
  • Signs (new or re-facing)
  • Demolition
  • Moving structures
  • Water/wastewater connections
  • Irrigation systems

Currently, properties located outside of the city limits and within the Leander ETJ are only required permits for signs and water/wastewater connections.

This list is not comprehensive, so please confirm with a city building inspector what permits are needed prior to commencing work.
