Refer to the Permit Fee Schedule (PDF) for the cost of permits.
Permit fees can only be paid after the permit application is approved (with the exception of Plan Review Fees*). The applicant will receive a notification email when the status is "Approved, Awaiting Payment."
The applicant can submit payment by credit or debit card online via the Orange Beach Permit Portal: Click on MAKE A PAYMENT on the MY ACCOUNT page, select the permit(s) to pay, enter payment information, and click SUBMIT. There is a 3% convenience fee that applies to all credit and debit card transactions.
Payment by check or cash can be submitted in the Community Development office at 4101 Orange Beach Blvd, Orange Beach, AL 36561. Make all checks payable to "City of Orange Beach."
No work should begin on the project until after the payment is processed by Community Development staff and the permit status is "Issued."
*Plan Review Fees are due at the time of application and are non-refundable. To pay Plan Review Fees on the Permit Portal, click on VIEW MY REQUESTS on the MY ACCOUNT page, click on the permit number, click on MAKE A PAYMENT, enter payment information, and click SUBMIT.
