New Florida Building Code In Effect January 1

As of January 1, 2024, the State of Florida, along with the City of Longwood will be enforcing the new 8th Edition, 2023 Florida Building Code Cycle, which includes the 2020 National Electrical Code. All permit packages submitted on or after January 1, 2024, are required to have design based on the 8th Edition of the FBC, and 2020 NEC. Longwood will also be updating our Building Code Administrative section, Chapter 1 of the FBC to reflect all new changes. The administrative section will be available on our Permitting and Inspections page once adopted.
