The Jamaica Development Application Portal (JDAP)
An online platform that enables you to submit development applications. Registered users can make secure payments online, update information, upload attachments and see their application status, reports and comments.
You need a building permit if you seek to change the use of a property, plan and build, outline or demolish a building or renew or retain a structure. You will also require an environmental permit. JDAP allows you to apply for both in a convenient and transparent process.
Please note that you are still required to submit four hard copies of your building plans.
