A trade permit is: authorization from The City to perform electrical, plumbing, gas or mechanical (HVAC) work; each trade has its own permit type.

A homeowner’s trade permit is: authorization from The City to perform electrical, plumbing, gas or mechanical (HVAC) work; the permit is obtained by the homeowner to do a limited scope of work.

If you are planning any building (framing, structural) with your project, a Building Permit will also be required, and possibly a Development Permit.  To see more information about your specific project, visit the Home Improvement Hub.
