The PORT is open for permitting use

Pender County is pleased to announce that our central permitting software, known as the PORT, is now reopened.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we worked to improve this vital service.

While we are confident that the system should function as intended for each user, we fully expect for some users to find problems or glitches with the PORT as we move through the next few weeks. We also will be continuing to make improvements as we begin to fully realize the new tools we have at our disposal, so things may continue to look slightly different over time.

Should you encounter an issue, please do not hesitate to contact us at 910-259-1201 or by email at so that we can start the process to correct those issues in short order.

While we believe the PORT to be a convenient tool for the submission of all building and construction permits, Pender County Planning & Community Development continues to accept all applications and will always assist anyone with the permit process in person at either our Burgaw or Hampstead offices.
