The Village has a 2-step process for tenant suite renovations or builds:
1) Four sets of plans (24x36) are presented to the Village office for review. A Pre-Application form is to be filled out along with a Zoning Compliance Permit. Fees for the Pre-Application Permit is $100 plus a fire review fee based upon the square footage of the suite build or addition. Find Forms Here: suite renovation form, Zoning Compliance.
Call the Village office at 248-644-0044 for the fire review fee.
2) Upon approval by the Village, two sets of approved plans and copy of the applications are taken to the City of Southfield Building Dept. for construction review and issuance of building permits. The applicant will be charged the regular permit fees at the City of Southfield.
