Development and Environmental Review Approval Process:
Applicants are required to complete online application forms to receive Development and Environmental Review (DER) approval. DER can be completed entirely online through Broward County’s ePermits System main page or ePermits sign-in. Upon confirmation of compliance, DER approval certificates will be granted. Most evaluations require payment of an approval review fee. The size and nature of the project dictate the fee which cannot be determined until review of the project is completed. Fees for DER approval may be paid by E-Check (online only), cash (in person), check (in person) or credit card.
