Construction Department

A call to the Construction Department and the Zoning Officer is an important step, even when planning minor improvements.  Regardless of the size and location of the proposed installation, residents should become familiar with the zoning, construction code and permit requirements before installing fencing, retaining walls, a garden shed or a swimming pool.  In general all improvements require zoning review before work may begin even if the project is exempt from construction permit requirements.

The Construction Department is responsible for enforcing the regulations of the State Uniform Construction Code, which was established by the State of New Jersey, to ensure that new construction (commercial, industrial, and residential) adheres to minimum standards of workmanship and safety. The Inspectors review structural construction, plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and electrical work prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy to ensure compliance with the State Uniform Construction Code. For more information, please call 973-398-6832 x 114.
