Building Department Citizen Portal

May , 2020: COVID-19 procedures- The City of Ladue Building Department is open M-F with limited staffing and inspection availability. We require 48 hours notice for inspection requests.  Please plan accordingly and submit your requests for inspection by telephone 314-997-6308 or email

You must have your permit number and address of project to complete your inspection request. We will respond with a confirmation of inspection as soon as possible. A request is not a guarantee of inspection date or time. We appreciate your patience at this time. 

The Ladue Building Department is now accepting some over the counter permits to be submitted online. Some of these permits will require that you upload supporting documentation. Failure to do so will result in the delay of permit reviews. 

If you have your permit number and contractor's ID (see contractor search) you can also request inspections through the portal. We will confirm the requested inspection date and time. Your request is not a guarantee of an appointment. Please allow 48 hours lead time for your requests as our schedule fills up quickly. We will do our best to accommodate requests. 

Thank you!
