Zoning permits are required whenever a property owner intends to build a structure, add onto a building or structure, alter a building or structure, and/or change the use of land or buildings. So, if you’re planning on making improvements to your property, the answer to the question, “Do I need a permit?” is probably yes. Please check with the Township Zoning/Building Code Official prior to starting any project, by contacting him at 610-262-7012 ext. 103. Please review the material posted at the following link within this site: Zoning Permit

Additionally, a permit is issued when the property owner, through submission of an application and supporting documentation, (such as a plot plan) demonstrates the proposed improvements are in compliance with the zoning ordinance, i.e., the proposed shed will be set-back far enough from the property boundary. Acquisition of a Zoning Permit and Building Permit prior to the start of work is a legal obligation of the property owner. Issuance of a Zoning Permit demonstrates the proposed improvement is in compliance with Township regulations, and as such, obtaining a Zoning Permit helps to protect the value of the property investment.
