Online Services


Manatee County Online Services allows you to do business with the Building and Development Services Department (BADS) without ever having to come to our offices.

Our new Online Services are available to everyone, including homeowners, permitting services, agents and contractors, allowing you to:

  • remotely submit applications and payments for permitting, licensing, planning and zoning.
  • track your project’s progress from submittal through final approval from the convenience of your connected home/office computers or mobile devices

If you prefer to do business with us the old-fashioned way, in person, you still have that option at our office locations in downtown Bradenton and at the North River Annex in Ellenton. However, we think after you try our new Online Services, you’ll discover it’s an easy-to-use system that will save you time and travel.
