Common examples are new houses, additions, decks, fences, storage buildings and driveways. A zoning permit is also required when there is a change in use of the property, such as the property changing from a retail shop to a professional office. If there is any question as to whether your project would require a permit or not, please contact the Town Office and someone will help you.
