A Step-by-Step Guide: Step 5

Historic Area Work Permits

ChimneyStep 5: Post-consideration

If the HPC approves the HAWP application at the meeting, then it is returned to the Department of Permitting Services for issuance of the HAWP.

  • If a Building Permit is not required for the project, the owner may commence work.
  • If a Building Permit is required for the project in addition to the HAWP, a copy of the approved HAWP and stamped plans are mailed to the property owner and are to be presented to the Department of Permitting Services officials when obtaining a building permit.

If you are not satisfied with the decision of the HPC, you can submit a revised application to be reviewed by the HPC at a future meeting or appeal the decision to the County Board of Appeals 240-777-6600, which will hear the original application de novo (that is, starting fresh with a new hearing) and render its own decision.
