The purpose of the Construction Department is to administer and enforce State Regulations relating to the construction, alteration, renovation, rehabilitation, maintenance, occupancy and use of buildings and structures.

Before you start your project, you will need to:

  • Get a "Construction Permit Application." This would include an application jacket and one or more "Technical Sections" which can be picked up at the Construction Department or downloaded from below.
  • Submit your completed applications and any plans to the Construction Office for review.  If a Zoning permit is required, your application will be given to the Zoning Officer first for approval.
  • When we complete the plan review process, if the application is incomplete we will notify the applicant.
  • When we complete the approval process, you will also be notified that your permits are ready.
  • You may start work when you have paid for and received your construction permit.
  • Remember that N.J. State Law 13:45 A- 16.2 states: "Final inspections are required before final payment is made to the contractor."
