Mayor’s Message - Building Permits

Many residents may not be aware that permits may be required for improvements to your home or property.   The purpose of a permit is to ensure that the job conforms to the safety regulations set up by the NJ Uniform Construction Code. The building department will perform inspections approving each phase of a project.

The types of work that require permits are:

Plumbing and electrical projects

Porches, fences and decks

Installation or replacement of hot water heaters or central air

Installation of permanently wired fire, burglary or intercom systems

Construction or repair of curbs or sidewalks

Swimming pool construction, alteration or repair

Before you start any improvement project, please visit the building department page on our website www.berkeleyheightstwpnj.gov/building/index.html  or call for more information.
