    You can familiarize yourself with the process of getting a building permit, either residential or commercial, with Henderson County Permits and Inspections' site. Henderson county has a webpage for the public to look up permits, projects, applicants, contractors, and more. You can also find projects by date range, otherwise you will need to enter the address or owner's name. You can search freely as many times as necessary. There, you'll find information about projects (zoning, improvement and other permit types, including manufactured homes). Additionally, you can view occupants or owners, property details and applicant's information. There is a separate link to the property's permit details of status, date of issue and more.
