Building Inspections

Our Mission

The Building Inspections division administers and enforces the building construction, fire, zoning, and neighborhood integrity codes and ordinances in an effort to ensure a safe, well-maintained community.

Notices Regarding Inspections & Citizen Self Service

We strongly encourage any homeowner, contractor, or other party who comes into contact with a City of Coppell Building, Code Compliance, or Environmental Health inspector to wear a mask or face covering.

Citizen Self-Service Portal (CSS)

All inspections should be scheduled through the Citizen Self-Service portal. All permit applications, plans, and payments will also be completed through CSS. The portal and instructions to create an account can be found here.

Please note: the CSS Payment Portal will be unavailable from September 14-15, 2023, for necessary maintenance. You will be unable to submit payment online for permits, plan reviews, or inspections during this time. Those wishing to pay for these services should visit the Town Center Annex, 265 Parkway Blvd., to pay in person while the upgrade is underway. We apologize for the inconvenience! Learn more...
