Hayward e-Permits Portal

We've made BIG improvements to our permitting process.

December 5, 2022

Notice of Temporary Shutdown:
The Energov system will be shut down for server maintenance during the following period: Friday, May 26, 2023, through Monday, May 29, 2023, and will not be accessible during this time for online submittals. Access will restore on Tuesday, May 30, 2023. Thank you for your understanding!

We have launched something big!

Introducing an online system to allow residents, builders and developers to conduct project review, building permitting, code enforcement and related activities with a click of a mouse or touch of a screen: Hayward e-Permits Portal!

Now, you will be able to apply for a permit, track your application, request an inspection and much more, all digitally.

The new e-permit system, powered by Energov, is operational starting Dec. 5. With it, residents, builders and developers will be able to apply for land-use approvals, building permits and business licenses online rather than visiting our permit counter. 

The twin objectives are to streamline planning and permitting in Hayward and make more readily available public information about construction, development, and building and code enforcement.

Skip the line, save time and apply online! Visit the e-Permits Portal today.
