A building permit is required for everything that is not considered an ordinary repair or maintenance. Permits are required for finishing basements, decks, raised patios, swimming pools, renovating bathrooms & kitchens, water heaters, sheds, gazebos, new electrical wiring and new plumbing installations. A building permit is required whenever you are constructing, moving, altering, converting, improving, repairing or demolishing a structure in any area of the Township. It applies to work on the interior as well as exterior of the structure. Work covered by the building permit must be inspected by the Township before the project can be considered complete.
