Planning & Zoning


The purpose and intent of the building permit review process is to secure the general purposes and objectives of the Town Code and to ensure that the general appearance and public safety of buildings, structures and development are harmonious with and complement the neighborhood.  Projects are evaluated to ensure that they are consistent with the Town Code, the Town General Plan, Zoning and General Design Standards; and meet applicable health, safety and public welfare standards.


Brian Head Town utilizes the services of  Iron County Building & Zoning  for the permit and inspection process.  Iron County can be contacted directly or you may contact Wendy Dowland at the Brian Head Town office for assistance.

Property owners are responsible for retaining the services of Iron County prior to the start of any work.  Submission of a building permit application with the proper completed requirements must be approved before a permit will be issued.  

Prior to a building being occupied, the Iron County Building Department and Brian Head Town will verify compliance of the approved codes and documents.  A Certificate of Occupancy will then be issued by the Iron County Building Department upon completion of the project.
