Special Permits

Three tiers of special permits exist for events being held within the Town of Belleair. Information on these tiers is provided below. Any questions about these permits and their processes may be directed to Town Hall at (727) 588-3769.

Temporary Activity Permits 

Garage sales, estate sales, vehicle sales, and other special activities that are allowed by ordinance require a Temporary Activity Permit.

Temporary Activity Permits are available at the Police Department service counter and the application form may be downloaded here. Completed applications may be submitted in person Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Applicants may also call (727) 588-3769 to arrange for the form to be emailed instead.

A company applying for an estate sale must first obtain a Local Business Tax Receipt from the Town Clerk before a permit will be issued.
