About Building and Land Use Department

Permit Requirements 

  • Accurate plans of what you plan to build. 
  • A plan view (overhead) and an elevation (cross-section) of structure. It must be accurate and self explanatory. We prefer scale drawings but non-scale and well dimensioned will be accepted. 
  • Size of lumber and spans must be identified. Beams & headers must be identified for size and span as well. 
  • A plot plan of the property showing the location of the proposed building, the septic system and well location. 
  • For additions that affect the number of bedrooms in a house or change the footprint of the existing house, the health department must review proposal first. 
  • A "model energy code" calculation is required for homes and additions. (Contact the building official for further details) 
  • Braced wall details. 
  • Your contractors name, license number and certificate of worker's comp insurance if applicable.

FAQs

Do I need a permit for a swimming pool?

Pools that are designed to hold 24 inches of water or more are required to have a permit and applicable barriers and safe guards in the state of Connecticut. You should direct your questions to your local Building Department. Pool regulations are the same for all towns and cities in Connecticut.
