A Building/Development Application is a vital requirement for a wide range of construction and development activities, ensuring that projects are executed in compliance with local regulations and safety standards. Here’s when a building permit is required:
- All New Construction: Whether you’re building a new structure or facility, a building permit is a mandatory step to ensure that the construction meets safety and zoning codes.
- Extensions, Additions, Repairs, Relocation, and Demolition of Existing Buildings: Alterations to existing structures, such as extensions, repairs, or demolition, all require a building permit to guarantee safety and compliance.
- Construction, Relocation, and Repair of a Fence: Even fence-related activities, such as construction, relocation, or repair, fall under the purview of building permits.
Exemptions for Minor Repairs: It’s important to note that certain minor repairs for maintenance and improvement may not necessitate a building permit. However, it’s crucial to understand the criteria for these exemptions.
Application Process: To initiate the process, please complete the Building/Development Application Form. For additional guidance and details, refer to the Information Sheet. The application form is designed to collect essential information about your project, ensuring that it aligns with local codes and regulations.
Displaying Your Building Permit: Applicants should be aware that any Building Permit issued by the Town must be prominently displayed on the project site. This is a crucial step in ensuring transparency and compliance throughout the construction or development process.
Remember, ANY BUILDING PERMIT ACQUIRED FROM THE TOWN IS REQUIRED TO BE PROMINENTLY DISPLAYED ON SITE.
