How do I get a permit for new construction on my property?

File a zoning permit with the Building department describing your project to determine if you just need a building permit or if you need a public review/public hearing for wetlands, zoning relief, architectural review etc.  NOTE: Not all projects require a public hearing.

The permit path to project completion varies depending on the zoning district where your property is located, whether or not there are wetlands and how big your project is.

Other permits may be required from the Department of Public Works. Please visit their page.
