Avoyelles Parish Permitting Dept issues Development and Electrical Permits for the Parish. This office also provides Floodplain Management for the unincorporated areas.

 

The purpose of the Avoyelles Parish Permit Office is to ensure that all building codes adopted by the Parish Police Jury are enforced and in compliance.
For construction that must meet State Code requirements you have a Third Party Provider. We do have one that you can use if you do not have your own.
 
Third Party Provider web site is on contact information tab.
Your Third Party Provider must be registered through the Avoyelles Parish Police Jury also.
