Inspection Procedures

How to Schedule

The two most effective ways to schedule inspections in the City of Bastrop:

  1. Call the Planning and Development Department Inspections phone line at 512-332-8848 - leave a voicemail
  2. Online through your ePortal Account

Information Needed to Request an Inspection

The department needs the following information to schedule your inspection:

  • Contact Name
  • Contact phone number
  • Address where inspection needs to occur
  • Permit Number (if available)
  • Inspection type
  • Date you would like the inspection to occur

Time Frame Expectations

Currently, the City's third party reviewer is conducting most inspections. We cannot schedule specific inspection times. The third party inspectors' schedule varies based on number of inspections requested for that day. 

  • Fire inspections - require 48 hours notice
  • All other inspections - next day


Note: The cut off time for the option of next-day inspections is 4:00 pm local time. If you request an inspection after 4:00 pm, it will likely take two business days for the inspector to arrive.



  • Call to request a fire final inspection Monday before 4:00 pm to get the inspection on Wednesday.
  • Call to request a plumbing rough inspection Monday before 4:00 pm to get the inspection on Tuesday.
  • If the call to request a framing inspection is made Monday at 4:30 pm, the inspection won't be until Wednesday
