A message from Jeff Dobson, Director
Planning & Codes Department
Welcome to the website for the Brentwood Planning & Codes Department!
Brentwood has integrated the municipal planning and codes functions for more effective and coordinated management of all development issues that affect the built environment and quality of life in our community. The City is well-known for the establishment and application of the highest standards for new development while maintaining our superior standard of living in established neighborhoods and commercial districts. The recently enacted Hillside Protection Overlay District
reflects our proactive approach to preserving the scenic beauty of Brentwood while providing opportunities for quality development.
Brentwood is most fortunate to employ an outstanding professional staff that can assist residents and the development community through the entire building process from land planning through the final stages of construction.
The Planning section guides the physical development of the City employing the guidance of the Brentwood 2020 Plan, while more specifically applying the Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Regulations. Planning professionals can also assist with floodplain development, sign regulations, home occupations, and other miscellaneous development issues.
The Codes Enforcement section facilitates the entire range of residential and commercial construction in Brentwood, while also enforcing a range of standard municipal codes. Codes professionals ensure proper and safe construction practices, and remain available for consult on more technical building codes questions. Though the principal focus of the department is centered on residential development and additions, we also assist with commercial construction, swimming pools, fences, decks, and inquiries about the condition of neighboring properties.
Our offices are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm. Our telephone number is 615-371-2204 and our fax number is 615-371-2233.
