Oakland Launches New ‘Rapid Permits’ for Instant Approvals

The City of Oakland has revamped its permitting process by introducing ten new “rapid permits” through the Online Permit Center. This initiative aims to simplify and accelerate permit issuance, granting applicants immediate approval once they complete the application and pay the required fee.

According to California Construction, these additions complement existing lead-based paint (LPB) and solar permits. Re-Roofing permits and insulation certificates for insulation installation will also be added this quarter. Other additions will include roll out of a new Building Combination permit (B) for apartment unit remodels and minor commercial tenant improvements (TI); and Residential Building Combination (RBC) for less complex bathroom and kitchen remodels and other minor home improvements.

With just a few clicks, applicants can log in or easily register, submit their applications, make payments from their computer or mobile device, and witness the automatic issuance of their permits.
