How to apply for plans resubmission

When your project is in the "Work and Construction" phase in Cloudpermit, the building permit can be used to start a new building application, i.e., a supplemental building application. A supplemental permit is an approved building permit application that adds to or improves on a permit that has already been approved. 

These permit applications can never exist without a parent permit. The building permit can have supplemental applications attached to it during the construction project. 

  • Applicants will invite all required parties to the application.
  • They will upload plan attachments and digitally sign off on the application.
  • They will pay the plan approval fee, and submit the supplemental application to the municipal building authority for review and approval.
  1. Navigate to the "Work & Construction" workspace. Your application's current step is "Permit Issued."
  2. Select "Apply for plans resubmission" from the "More Actions" drop-down list at the top of the workspace header.
  3. Confirm your selection by choosing "Yes."

The supplemental application will copy the data from your original building permit application.

  • You are now in the new supplemental building application workspace.
  • Under "Related Workspaces" in the new workspace for the supplemental application, you can see a list of all the current workspaces for the supplemental application.
  • The application is in the "Draft" step.
  • The "Required Tasks" progress bar indicates the actions you must take on the application before submitting it to the municipal building department.

Filling out the application and signing it off

  1. The "Required Tasks" progress bar shows the action you must take. Usually, you must fill out the application data under "Application Data."
  2. Expand the "Application Data" section. Fill out the required form.
  3. Click "Sign Off."
  4. You have now digitally signed off on your supplemental application.
  5. You have now filled out the required data in your application. If needed, you invite necessary building professionals to to collaborate in your application in the "Parties to the Application" section. Expand the section and click "Add or Invite Party." Read the support article here.
  6. Furthermore, you can upload attachments which you think might help to understand your building plans under "Attachments." Read the support article here.
  7. Your application is complete and ready to be submitted. If you want to remove your supplemental application, you can still do that by clicking "Delete Application." It will be removed from the Cloudpermit database.
  8. Otherwise, click "Submit Application" to send it over to the municipal building department.
  9. Your supplemental application has been moved to your municipality's building department who will begin reviewing the application.
