The Building Office is responsible for ensuring public safety and welfare associated with the design, construction and utilization of residential and commercial buildings. All contractors and homeowners must obtain a building permit when constructing, remodeling, adding or demolishing any building in Cumberland County.
Applying for Permits
When applying for a permit to build a structure you will need to submit an application with 2 full sets of plans. You will receive 1 set back upon the building permit being issued. Also, you will need to know what the setbacks are from the structure to all property lines for zoning approval.
Please be aware that the cut off time for processing and accepting applications is 4 pm daily.
Please note our office is closed every third Thursday of each month for training.
