As a result of the COVID-19 lockdown many people have spent more time at home over the past year. The additional time spent at home appears to have resulted in an increase of home renovation projects, which has in turn led to a large permitting backlog as more permits are requested.
In Hernando County, the current wait time for a permit is several weeks at minimum, although it may be possible to speed up the process in emergency cases. If you are planning on building, submit your permit as soon as possible, because it can take a while to be approved.
