Land Disturbance Permits and Pre-Con Meetings

According to Murfreesboro City Ordinance, one must obtain a Land Disturbance Permit (LDP) for construction activity disturbing one or more acres of land. Below are the forms and documents the city uses, related to construction site permitting and erosion prevention and sediment control (EPSC). These documents helpful in applying for the LDP and inspecting and reporting. Also below is a link to the State’s construction permitting program. 

​Application for Land Disturbance

Click here for the Land Disturbance Checklist and ApplicationA permit fee of $150 and $50 per acre disturbed ground or portion thereof is required, after pre con meeting. Example: for a project disturbing 5.25 acres, the fee will be $150 plus 6 multiplied by $50, for a total of $450. A preconstruction meeting is required for all land disturbing activity. After we have received all necessary items along with your application, for the LDP, we will schedule a pre-con meeting. You will now be given a choice to have an in-person pre-con or a VIDEO ZOOM meeting. We will no longer allow "conference call" Zoom meetings. If you choose to have a Zoom meeting, everyone must be on video.
