For almost any type of construction or remodeling, a construction permit is required. Before starting any work, please check with our office for full details of what is required for the project. The staff is more than happy to help anyone through the application process and to ensure that the work is done right. Through a process of plan review and a schedule of inspections, the Construction/Zoning office makes sure that all of the building specifications and materials used are up to code and, therefore, safe for the resident. Also, through this process, concerns of insurance and zoning requirements are dealt with. This application process is relatively simple and permits are inexpensive. For your benefit, please comply with this process.
With interest rates remaining low, new housing continues to thrive in Bethlehem Township. Building Officials believe that new home construction will continue at this pace due to the availability of developed lots.
