Commercial Development Checklist
This checklist is a tool for applicants, design professionals as well as Brunswick County Reviewers to ensure the
completeness of non-residential development plans submitted. This form must be filled out completely.
Incomplete applications may delay the permitting and project approval process and will incur additional fees.
Using this checklist can expedite the review process and yield faster approvals.
If a section is not applicable to the project, indicate by checking “ N/A”. In addition to the commercial
development application, checklist, and site plan, a review fee must be submitted at time of submittal based upon
the following schedule:
