The Construction Department processes construction permit applications and enforces compliance with construction sub-code requirements.

The process of obtaining a Construction Permit generally involves two phases, first obtaining "Prior Approvals" from the Township Zoning, Engineering and Health Departments and then submitting the complete application and plans to the Construction Department. 

A Prior Approval Cover Sheet can be found here.

Depending upon the nature of the project, Affordable Housing Development Fees, Tree Removal Permits, Historic Preservation Review and Road Opening Permits may also be required.
