Plan Check Program

The Plan Review and Construction Unit works to ensure that all proposed new construction or remodeling of retail food facilities and recreational health facilities meet minimum health and safety standards while ensuring the functionality, flow and ease of use for consumers and operators alike.

Plan Check submittal is required for: 

  • New construction of a food facility or recreational health facility (pool)
  • Remodel of an existing food facility or recreational health facility
  • Installation, replacement or modification of facility equipment, ventilation hoods, water heaters, floors/walls/ceilings, plumbing, etc.
Plan Check desk duty hours are 7:30am – 10:00am only, Monday through Friday. For general inquiries and/or to schedule a consultation, site assessment or plan check inspection, please call 408-918-3400, 7:30am – 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. (NOTE: Our last business transaction/payment/submittal of the day will be processed at 4:45pm. Transactions submitted after 4:45pm, will be processed the following business day.)
In an effort to streamline the plan review process and reduce the number of rejection letters, the Department of Environmental Health Plan Check Unit will be conducting completeness checks of all new food facility plan check submittals. If plans are missing major components, they will be not be accepted. Please review our Food Facility Plan Requirements and our Food Facility Plan Check Checklist prior to submittal. This change will go into effect August 1, 2017.
