Building Inspections

Building in Coweta is a simple process. Most permits can be issued while you wait.


Inspections are carried out on the same day they are requested and specific times for inspections can be made by arrangement. Pre-permit site visits and consultations are also welcome at any time.


The Codes adopted by the City of Coweta are the 2018 International Code Council codes and 2017 National Electric Code. These Codes surpass the standards of the Oklahoma Universal Building Code Commission minimum requirements.

In most cases homeowners can work on their own properties without trade qualifications or licenses. However, all contractors, journeymen and apprentices must be licensed or registered by the State of Oklahoma, and must be registered with the City of Coweta before working within the City.
