​Building Safety/Code Enforcement



Program Mission

The mission of the Department of Building Safety and Code Enforcement is to administer the North Carolina State Building Code to the Robeson County citizenry in an effective, efficient and professional manner, ever striving to safeguarding and improving the environment of those we serve.

Program Description

The purpose of the Department of Building Safety and Code Enforcement is to provide consistent and precise enforcement of the North Carolina State Building Codes and all local ordinances related to the construction of new buildings and alterations to existing buildings. Additional duties are the enforcement of subdivision, soil and sediment control restrictions and flood plain management. Comprehensive records such as applications, permits and reports of all inspections preformed are maintained as required by the N.C. State Administration Code.

One Stop Permitting Finally Here

In October 2012 the Robeson County Department of Building Safety and Code Enforcement moved to our present location and are now occupying the “Old DSS Administration Building located at 435 Caton Road in Lumberton.

The Robeson County Board of Commissioners, along with County Administration, approved and funded renovations to the old building and the results have been astonishing. The restructuring and the relocation of the Building Inspections Department, the Planning and Zoning Department, along with Environmental Health and E-911 Addressing was implemented.


One Stop Permitting allows Developers and Citizens of Robeson County to visit a single location for all their permitting needs. Improvements and enhancements throughout all the One Stop Department have created a much better environment for the staff and the people to whom we provide services.



Beginning July 15, 2015 that a $5 technology fee will be included on all permit applications!
