​Prince William County is proud to be home to a thriving business community. As such, the Prince William County Department of Development Services strives to be innovative, responsive and efficient to support commercial growth.

The Prince William County Building Development Division (BDD) is pleased to announce that ePortal now features an Auto-Generated Permit Application. The Auto-Generated Permit Application is 'auto-filled' with data entered in ePortal by the customer. BDD staff will then access and process the information, as usual (electronic submissions only).

"This new auto-generated permit application removes the additional steps that were previously required of customers to complete a PDF fillable form. Therefore, this latest ePortal feature saves our customers' time, as well as reduces the County's processing time," shared Eric Mays, Prince William County building official.

Ensuring building safety to local, state and federal code is Development Services' mission and mandate and the first line of public safety. The department is ready to help local establishments be "Open for Business."

For further information on ePortal, please visit the ePortal videos, user guides and FAQs, and checklists.

To find out which plans can be submitted using ePortal, see tables one and two in the Customer Electronic Plan Review ePlans Guide here.

The Building Development Forms Management System provides easy access to "fillable" forms from an IT device.
