A storage shed permit is required prior to construction of all sheds over 120 square feet in area built within the Town of Yucca Valley. A building plan and site plan showing lot size, property lines, and the location of all existing and proposed buildings must be approved by the Building and Safety (B&S) department before a storage shed permit will be issued. Sheds with less than 120 square feet have setback requirements, however sheds over 120 square feet must meet additional setback requirements which can be obtained from the Planning department. Sheds under 120 square feet are exempt from requiring a building permit, but check with the Planning department for property setbacks. Sheds that exceed 120 square feet must meet setbacks for accessory buildings.
Plan review of your project may find that your construction is not in compliance with zoning regulations in your area, or that the work will require additional digging permits before construction can proceed. In these cases, the B&S department will contact you regarding the necessary steps. Additional permits and fees may be required depending on the nature of the project.
For more information about storage shed permits and fees, contact the B&S department at 760-365-0099 x 302.
