Why do I need a building permit to do work on my own property?
Sand Springs, like other cities and many counties in Oklahoma, has adopted a set of uniform building, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical (heat and air) codes that provide minimum standards for new construction and renovations. The codes not only protect the lives of people living in homes or working in buildings, but they protect adjacent properties and their occupants. Building permits and inspections assure these minimum standards are followed.
