Building Permit – Stop All Work

Stop Work - No PermitLooks like a builder got caught up in the new Holmes Beach City permit approval process.

This house was red flagged 2 weeks ago after demolition work had begun. The notice states the reason to be ‘no permit’.

Two months ago the City of Holmes Beach reviewed its building code after discussion with FEMA rules on floodplain insurance.

Subsequently, a draft code was approved and went into effect, with a projection that new permits received by April 9th would be issued in 30 days.

However, demolition began on this property early April, with walls removed, roof peeled back, and interior gutted.

A call to COHB Building Department confirmed that no permits had been issued and all work, demolition included, must stop until approved.
