About


DPIE is responsible for coordinating and 
enforcing standards that control what goes
on before, during and after construction.
 
Staff from nine agencies, who work
cooperatively on permit processing, business
licensing, plan review, inspection and
enforcement comprise DPIE.  Employees
from County, bi-County and State agencies
have co-located to DPIE in an effort to
streamline the Department's processes.

Permitting & Licensing Division provides administrative oversight of permits and licenses.

Site/Road Plan Review Division assists permittees/applicants in expediting the review process time associated with permits by offering an optional Peer Review Program.

Building Plan Review Division provides technical support to the development community through the review and approval of plans for residential and commercial construction.

Inspections Division protects the natural man-made environment in Prince George's County, as well as the safety and welfare of our citizens, by enforcing building, site and road development codes and regulations.

Enforcement Division ensures that Prince George's County remains a great place in which to live, work, visit and invest by enforcing property maintenance standards and appropriate zoning laws to keep communities free of litter and blighted properties.
