The Forsyth County Department of Planning and Community Development is pleased to offer online access to our eStatus public hearing application and land development permit and plat data system. Our users should be aware of several items:

  • The data contained on this site is intended for information purposes only. The data may not reflect the most current records or include all information that may be associated with the hard-copy record.

  • All newly submitted application, permit, and plat information will be made available via eStatus as it is entered into our database. Older records may display incorrectly formatted fields or may not include data in certain fields at all. To find more information about these older records, please contact staff prior to visiting the Department of Planning and Community Development as many of these hard copy files may be located in off-site storage.

  • Document scanning shall be considered complete when a final decision by an elected or appointed official is executed or when administrative review is finalized. Documents associated with a final decision or permit issuance or denial shall be made available through eStatus, but additional, submitted correspondence after this period pertaining to such decision or issuance will not be uploaded to the eStatus system.

  • Audio and video files will not be uploaded to the eStatus system. If these file types are submitted, they will be available through access to the hard-copy record.
We hope you find the information provided on this site useful.
