Why do I need a building permit just to put up a fence?

A building permit protects all property owners and residents by ensuring that work in the township abides by the building codes and zoning ordinance adopted by the township. It is the property owner's responsibility to obtain the required permits, although some contractors include the cost of a permit in their bill.


If you have any questions, please contact the Building and Permits Department.
