Permits are used to regulate construction. The process is designed to ensure that all construction within the Township is safe. The safety of building occupants is the primary reason for construction codes. Construction codes in effect in New Jersey can be found in the following link: NJ State Codes and Regulations
There are several types of permits, depending on the type of construction- structural, plumbing, mechanical or combination. Most homeowner projects require a "combination permit." In addition, permits are required for the demolition and relocation of buildings.
