The Building Inspections Office and Planning and Zoning Offices handle the new construction permitting process. Prior to zoning approval and permitting, and building construction permitting, the following uses should contact the Sevier County Health Department. The Tennessee Department regulates these uses through the Sevier County Health Department:
  • Food service establishments
  • Public swimming pools
  • Tattoo and/or body piercing establishments
  • Hotels and motels
  • Organized campgrounds
For more information, contact the Sevier County Health Department at 865-453-2787 or email  sevierco.hd@tn.gov.   Click here for more information.

Failure to get plan approval from the Health Department before construction can cost substantial time and money to make necessary corrections.
