You'll need a fireplace permit if you are planning to install/construct or replace a gas or wood fireplace.
You'll be given a gas permit if you:
- own the house and reside in it
The fireplace will have two inspections:
- One prior to any coverings like drywall or brickwork
- One upon completion
Note: A further permit must be obtained for a gas fireplace. Only a licensed gas fitting contractor will be given a gas permit.
