Los Angeles Building and Safety

When it comes to dealing with potential safety hazards, Los Angeles Building and Safety takes some preventative measures that prove really helpful. Next time you're having a discussion with a contractor, make sure you take a look at these 8 tips.



The Building & Safety Division provides plan checking, permit issuance, building inspection, and other building and construction related services. This Division is responsible for the development and enforcement of minimum standards for the safeguarding of life, health, property and public welfare through the regulation of the design, construction, quality of materials, and use of all buildings and structures within the City. The City of La Palma contracts for Building and Safety Services with Charles Abbott and Associates. Almost all improvement plans will require plan check prior to permit issuance. Three sets of plans and a plan check fee are required to initiate the plan check process. Some improvement plans may require Fire and/or Health review and approval. In this case, additional plans will need to be submitted directly to the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) and/or the Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA) with their respective plan check fees.

This Section is responsible for the administration and supervision of the: permit application/building plan review processes; Building plan check engineers; hearings conducted by the Building Board of Appeals; and compliance with the Building Codes and applicable Federal, State, and County laws and regulations for all buildings and structures within the unincorporated County and 14 Contract Cities.

Submit projects for plan check through the online Building Permit Request Portal. These projects must have Planning approval. Be sure to include “plan check” in the Project Description. Once the application has been processed, an invoice will be emailed for E-Payment by credit card. After submittal, staff will contact the applicant for additional information and documents.

CALGreen and the City requires Construction and Demolition (C&D) project managers to recycle or reuse a minimum 65% of the waste generated. Download the C&D Debris Recycling Packet to get started. At the end of your project, complete a Recycling Report. Owner/Builders and Project Managers must provide haul tickets and diversion information. (Source: www.malibucity.org)
