Question When Do I Need A White County Permit?
Building Permit Request forms are to be filled out and turned in to Brookside Board of Directors or mailed to the address below.

If an application is for a New Construction (Building) a copy or permit number from the White County Permit must be included with your Brookside Permit Application. You do not have to have a Brookside Campground POA Permit to apply for a White County Building Permit but you have to have a permit for any work done over $200 outside your camper and on your lot area from Brookside Campground. The lot owner is responsible for knowing where their property lines are located. All campers, buildings, etc are to be located 5 feet from the property line; to be less than 5 feet you must apply for a Variance Permit with White County. You will be required to have letters from the lot owner who's property joins yours when applying for a Variance. Brookside Campground will also request you have a surveyor survey the lot if any common/green space is involved in the Variance. If the Permit Application is for painting a color chart sample must be included or a drop of paint color on application.
