Planning Approval & Permits

Prior to undertaking any improvement projects, owners are encouraged to research whether a planning or building permit is required. Planning approval is often required for improvement projects on the exterior of buildings, including windows, walls, stairways, and decks. If a property owner is not sure whether a planning or building permit is required for a project, check with your code enforcement inspector.
