Phase 8: Completing Your Project
Learn about the other permits you may need in addition to a discretionary planning permit.

Depending on the scope of the project, Ventura County, as well as other State or regional agencies, may require subsequent ministerial permits and additional materials before you can complete the review process and have the new use or structure use inaugurated. These requirements are detailed in the conditions of approval approved with the project by the decision-makers. The applicant must carefully read the conditions of approval and coordinate with other departments, agencies, and divisions to satisfy their specific permitting requirements.
