Getting a Permit to Build Your Pole Barn

Before you build your pole barn, you will likely need to secure permits from your local or county government. Allow time to complete this process when planning the time frame for construction of your pole barn.

Every piece of land is unique, and policies and regulations can change over time. You may need other permits than your neighbor who built a pole barn on a different piece of land at a different time. Call your local or county building department to inquire about the necessary permits.

Ask about how long it will take to complete the process and receive your permit. Factor this into your plans.

Find out what information you will need to provide with your permit application. You will probably need to submit an application along with site plans, detailed construction prints, a legal description of the land, and the names of the contractors involved in the project, and possibly other information.

Make sure that your property meets zoning requirements. Find out about the current zoning and whether there are any limitations on the types of buildings that can be constructed on your property.

You may need approval from additional agencies, such as the surveyor's office, highway or street department, or health department. There may also be rules requiring you to be certain distances from septic fields, property lines, ditches, and other areas.

Find out if you will need a variance to meet requirements related to setbacks. If so, ask about the process.

Ask if there are any restrictions on the size or height of your pole barn.

If you want to build a pole barn on your property, be sure to get information about permits and requirements early in the process. This will allow you to stay on schedule and get your pole barn built as soon as possible.
