Building & Construction Code Enforcement

About the Department

It is the responsibility of the Building Department to administer and enforce the Uniform Construction Code, State of New Jersey N.J.A.C.5:23 and Township Ordinances for all new and existing construction within the township.

These responsibilities include the issuing of all construction permits for Building, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire applications and performing the required inspections for code compliance and then issuing the proper certificate once the project has been completed.

It is the goal of the Building Department to ensure that all construction is code complaint for the safety and welfare of its residence and visitors.
