Grading Violations

Grading without a valid permit is a violation of the County Code. Penalties can include recordation of a Notice of Violation on the property deed and fines of up to $2,500 per day. To rectify a grading violation, a grading permit must be obtained, and the site may have to be restored to its original condition.

The California State Licensing Board requires contractors to obtain a permit prior to performing work. Please also note that the Planning Department reports contractors who perform work without permits to the Contractors State Licensing Board via their complaint form.
