A letter of permission for construction is a letter asking an official party that has jurisdiction over construction rights for approval to do construction. A letter of permission for construction should detail construction plans, a timeline for the construction project, strong reasoning as to why this construction project is necessary, and any other details that are relevant to the project. Below are two samples of what a letter of permission for construction might include.
Sample Permission Letter for Construction
I am a resident of your apartment building, and I have been living here happily for the past five years. I am writing this letter to ask for your permission to perform some construction in the courtyard of our building. Several other residents and I have gathered funds for this project, and all we need to proceed is your permission.
Several residents have voiced the opinion that the courtyard could be improved in several ways. We want to add a patio to accommodate more seating and a pavilion. We would also like to construct a basketball court. I have already contacted a contractor who can do this with the budget we currently have. The residents all agree that improving the courtyard would make the apartment building more fun and social place to live. Having a safe outdoor space will make a big difference to the residents—especially those with children.
Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing your response at your earliest convenience.

To Whom It May Concern,
I have been teaching at Elementary School for over ten years now, and I as well as many other teachers, are concerned by the state of our school’s cafeteria.
Other parts of the school have been remodeled over time, but the cafeteria is showing signs of aging, and it is in great need of repair. Mealtime is very important for our students, as it gives them time to recharge and socialize with their friends. Our students need a clean, functional place to eat their lunch.
Currently, the cafeteria area has several leaks in the roof. The flooring materials are very worn, and some of the tables and chairs are broken. The kitchen area is also very outdated, and the appliances used for cooking students’ lunches are unreliable due to old age. We are not able to fix these things, as they are old and new parts are no longer being manufactured.
I humbly request permission for our school to construct a new cafeteria wing for our students. The superintendent of our school district has already met with a local construction company. They have already visited our cafeteria, and they have agreed that it should be updated to comply with modern safety codes. They have given us a reasonable bid, and, with our current funds, we will be able to fund the construction of a new cafeteria wing.
All we need to move forward with this important project is your approval to construct.
Thank you for your time,
