What type of permit is required for sheds and other accessory structures?
All accessory structures such as sheds, decks, patios, garages, driveway expansions, etc. are subject to setback, height, and size restrictions specified in the Town of Holly Springs Unified Development Ordinance in addition to North Carolina State Building Code requirements.

A structure with any dimension less than or equal to 12 feet requires a Unified Development Ordinance Permit from the Department of Planning and Zoning. A building permit (residential | non-residential) from the Code Enforcement Department is required for any structure with any dimension greater than 12 feet. For electricity, an additional permit is required. Regardless of size, any deck or gazebo is required to obtain a permit from the Code Enforcement Department.
