NJDCA Construction Permit Application Packet & related forms can be found here.

Construction permits are required when:
You construct, enlarge, repair, renovate, alter, reconstruct or demolish a building or structure or you change the use of a building. A construction permit is permission to do most kinds of work on a dwelling or other type of commercial or industrial building. The purpose of the permit is to allow our inspectors to observe the progress of the work to be sure it is safe and meets code. The permit consists of five different Subcode sections as needed. They are Building, Electric, Plumbing, Fire, and Elevator.

Work that does not require a permit:
These are usually items that represent ordinary maintenance:
Examples are: painting and carpeting in residential structures,
replacement of storm windows and doors of the same size openings, wall paper, replacement of kitchen cabinets, etc.

We strongly encourage you to call the Construction Office and check to see if a permit is needed.
