OCCUPANCY permit INSPECTION
Occupancy inspections are required for all new occupancies and major remodels. The purpose of the occupancy inspection is to ensure compliance to life and safety codes prior to utility activation.
Occupancy permits for businesses in the Bayou Cane Fire Protection District are issued by the Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government Permit Office. Bayou Cane receives the inspection request from the Permit Office for the occupancy requiring an inspection and a fire inspector is assigned. The inspection will be completed in a timely manner. A written explanation of the deficiencies will be left at the occupancy the day of the inspection. All deficiencies will need to be corrected prior to approval by the Bayou Cane Fire Prevention Officer. The most common reasons for failure is an out of date fire extinguisher, sprinkler system, and/or alarm system.
