Am I required to obtain a permit to build a concrete or asphalt driveway?

No – but please take care not to encroach upon your neighbor’s property. If your home is served by a septic tank and overflow system, is all means, take care not to encroach over the top of any part of the existing system (or areas reserved for future expansion, or replacement, of the system). If you have questions concerning the location of your septic tank and overflow, contact the State of Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation at the link on the right side of this page.
