New Simple Bathroom Permit Program

Beginning April 1, 2019, the Bureau of Development Services will launch a new program to simplify bathroom permits for small projects. This new program, Simple Bathroom Permits, will allow an applicant to submit a standard building permit application through email. No drawings are required.

A project qualifies for a Simple Bathroom Permit when the following criteria are met:

  1. Interior only; no exterior alterations
  2. No changes to load bearing framing
  3. No more than 3 toilets on the property
  4. Located in a permitted structure in the primary residence (not in an accessory structure)
  5. Sink must be located in room with the toilet and shower or bath

Important Note: Other criteria may apply, including but not limited to party sewers and/or code violations. If criteria is not met, the applicant may not be eligible for a Simple Bathroom Permit remodel and must use standard permit process.

The project will include an initial consultation with a BDS Residential Inspector and will proceed with inspections as a regular residential permit.

Visit our website for more information on this program to see if your project qualifies, or call us at 503-823-9258 or email SBP@portlandoregon.gov.
