My business is moving into a new building, what do I need to do? How do I get my water turned on?

For your new location in Pelham you will need to have an inspection done. The new business inspection request form will need to be completely filled out and returned to our office, or it can be emailed to us. We perform a life safety inspection, on "new/added" location businesses to be sure nothing has been added without a permit, no loose wires, life safety items in place, etc. Once the business occupancy inspection request forms are returned we will start the internal zoning approval process. When we have zoning approval, we will accept payment for the inspection fee and set up an inspection on the day and time you choose. The building & fire inspectors will inspect in person at the time and day you choose, pending availability. Forms of payment we accept are cash, check and card. However, if you use card (debit/credit) it will charge an extra $3 as a processing fee and we do not accept American Express. Our office is located at Pelham City Hall, 3162 Pelham Parkway, Pelham, Alabama 35124. If you want to mail everything, please mail it to P.O. Box 1479 Pelham, AL 35124 Attn: Building Department.
