Why does the City of Sugar Land require building permits?
The City of Sugar Land and all other cities across the country use the building permit process to verify that construction or development will comply with building codes and zoning ordinances. The building codes and zoning ordinances are adopted by the City Council and become the law of the city. The development projects are also inspected to insure that compliance.
