As a joint function, the Inspections Department meets the needs of property owners and developers within the Cities of Valdosta, Lake Park, Dasher, and Hahira. In partnership with other departments and jurisdictions, the Inspections Department helps homeowners, business owners, and those in the commercial industry plan and execute development projects. Projects can be as simple as a home remodel and as complex as constructing a new building on undeveloped property. We invite you to look through our web pages for information on residential and commercial construction services and requirements.


Starting July 1, 2023, The City of Valdosta will only be permitting the following jurisdictions:

  • City of Valdosta
  • City of Hahira
  • City of Lake Park
  • City of Dasher

With this change comes new permit fees, plan review fees, and a new iWorQ program for online permitting and inspections.
