Powhatan County will be adopting the 2018 Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Codes July 1, 2021.  There are a lot of significant changes that will take place under the new 2018 codes.  Please keep in mind that Virginia allows a one year grace period where you can still apply under the 2015 code editions.  In order to apply under the 2015 codes you will  need to request this at the time of application.  If this is not requested your permit application, including plans, will be reviewed and inspected under the 2018 Virginia Code Editions.   

Please check back for updates and available significant changes for the 2018 codes.
