Requiring Foundation Survey Approval Letters

Starting January 1, 2023, a foundation survey approval letter (a copy of the foundation survey itself is not required) will need to be uploaded to the framing inspection requested via the Customer Self-Service Portal. This will apply to the following:

  • New single-family homes
  • New accessory dwelling units or private residential quarters 
  • New commercial structures
  • Additions to the primary foundation 

This new process will apply to projects that apply for a building permit after January 1, 2023. If a project has already started and a building permit has been issued, you are not required to upload a foundation survey approval letter. 

This will apply to all projects whether they are in city limits or not. If a project is within the County's zoning jurisdiction, you will be required to upload a foundation survey on CSS using the link below.

Requirements for Signatures on Final Plats

Starting January 1st, the County Review Officers will not sign off on final plats that do not have a wet signature for the surveyor. This process has come out of the training for Review Officers and the NC Secretary of state Land Records office. Gaston County is not an e-record county for plats, so signatures for the surveyor and the review officers cannot be digital. All other signatures do not have criteria.
