Permits are required by the Township for new construction, additions and structural alterations, pools, accessory structures such as sheds and fences, signs, temporary uses and structures, driveways, removal or addition of soil, wood and coal-burning stoves, fireplaces, use and occupancy permits for residential and commercial structures, and alarm systems, along with some less common uses.
Applications for permits as well as questions concerning the need for a permit, should be made to the Wrightstown Township Code Enforcement Officer at 215-598-3313, extension 104.
The cost of a permit is nominal and it could avoid significant costs that may be incurred if ordinances are ignored. In addition, penalty provisions apply to all construction which proceeds without proper permit(s) and inspections. We urge everyone to comply with zoning and building codes for the welfare of the entire community.
Please call the Township if you have any questions concerning your zoning designation, building setbacks, or for information on what may or may not require a permit.
