Do I Need a Permit?

You need this permit, which is administered by the North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Commission (ABC), if you want to sell alcoholic beverages.


However, you must contact the Town of Chapel Hill to complete the state's Inspection/Zoning Compliance Form, which is part of the ABC Retail Permit Application, before you can receive an ABC Permit. This form requires approval from the following Chapel Hill reviewers:

  • Fire Department
  • Planning
  • Building Inspections

To begin arranging inspections, contact the Development Services office at the Town of Chapel Hill.


 Note: When reviewing the Inspection/Zoning Compliance Form, the Town of Chapel Hill will require two complete sets of floor plans for review.
