Building Plan Review


The City of Clayton is committed to working with businesses and property developers to encourage business expansion and growth in our community. For new buildings or expansion, our staff will review building plans to ensure that they meet our zoning and development criteria. Once a Zoning Certificate has been issued, the plans need to be taken to Montgomery County Building Services who handles construction plan review and inspections. For new commercial developments, staff will also review the Storm Water Plans for the to-be-constructed facility. Click here to see the standards and calculations you need to show on your plans.

Fire Inspection


Clayton's Fire Department works with the County and will review the fire safety plans for the proposed building. They will also inspect fire suppression system during construction.

Each year, the Clayton Fire Department completes annual fire safety inspections on all the businesses located in the city as well as numerous foster and home inspections.
