Information for Developers

Located about 30 miles northeast of Atlanta in Gwinnett County, the City of Suwanee is known as a friendly, forward-thinking, fast-growing community committed to maintaining a high-quality of life for its almost 16,000 residents.

In order to make the process of land development as streamlined and understandable as possible, the planning and inspections department has created a Commercial Development Handbook.  The development review and permitting process is different from city to city; Suwanee's Commercial Development Handbook includes directions and flow charts as well as applications and forms that will be needed throughout the process in Suwanee.

Developers, engineers, and design professionals are encouraged to read through the guide and contact the planning & inspections department at 770/945-8996 with any questions. A meeting with the planning division staff is required prior to application submittal.  City staff can help identify potential challenges and set expectations, and this can save developers time and money.
