Note: The Cook County Department of Environment and Sustainability has new demolition application processes and procedures.

Beginning September 5, as part of a continued commitment to remain on the forefront of technology and customer service, the Cook County Department of Environment and Sustainability will be transitioning to a new electronic permit management system. The enhanced system will require all constituents, municipalities and contractors to apply for and receive demolition permits on-line.   Another added feature will require payment tendered by credit card or electronic check.

All constituents, municipalities, and contractors must start applying for demolition and asbestos permits online starting on September 5. Furthermore, applications postmarked on or after 9/19/18 will no longer be accepted. As of that date, paper applications will be rejected and retuned to the sender with instructions to apply and pay online.
