Harnett Co. Development Services Announces Move To Former County Administration Building

Office to close on April 29 and April 30; Reopen to the public on May 3

Harnett County Development Services, currently located at 108 E. Front Street in Lillington, will relocate to the former Harnett County Administration Building, located at 420 McKinney Parkway in Lillington, later this month.

The relocation of Development Services follows the recent move of County Administration to the new Harnett County Resource Center & Library. Development Services offices will now be near the Harnett County Government Complex, providing easier access for residents to receive services from the County.

Harnett County Development Services will begin their transition to their new location starting April 19. Staff will continue to offer limited in-person office hours from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the current Development Services office, located at 108 E. Front Street in Lillington, through April 28.

The Harnett County Development office will be closed all-day on April 29 and April 30 to complete the transition and finalize set up at the new location. The department will continue to provide inspections on April 29 and 30, and individuals can schedule inspections online at  https://permits.harnett.org/etrakit/.

Starting May 3 at 8:00 AM, Harnett County Development Services will reopen to the public at their new location at 420 McKinney Parkway in Lillington. In-person services will be available Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

In their new location, Development Services will continue to offer support to residents through their three Divisions: Planning, Central Permitting, and Inspections.

The Planning Division regulates and enforces the Harnett County Unified Development Ordinance, which contains Zoning Regulations, Subdivision Regulations, Communication Tower Regulations, Manufactured Home Park Regulations, Flood Damage Prevention Regulations, Water Supply Watershed Management and Protection Regulations, Historic Preservation Regulations, and The Land Use Plan for the County.

The Central Permitting Division processes applications and permits for the following departments: Environmental Health, E911 Addressing, Fire Marshal’s Office, Inspections, Planning and Public Utilities.

The Inspections Division provides plan review for residential, commercial, and industrial projects and enforces the North Carolina State Building Codes as adopted by the Building Code Council through the engineering division of the NC Department of Insurance. All building, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and manufactured housing and modular units are scheduled and inspected through this Division.

The Harnett County Planning Board, Board of Adjustments, Development Review Board, and Historic Properties Commission will also transition their meeting location to their new meeting room at 420 McKinney Parkway in Lillington.
