Yes, you do. Even if you are replacing an existing fence in kind, it is necessary for you to obtain a fence permit. In order to receive a permit you must first submit a zoning application along with a copy of your survey to scale showing the placement, type, and height of your fence. The application fee is $50.00. Once approved a fence permit will be issued.
It means that you will need to receive approval from the Zoning Officer before proceeding with the construction permit process. The zoning application can be obtained at the Building Department and requires you to submit a copy of your survey showing where the proposed addition will be. There is a $75 fee associated with the application. The Zoning Officer will then review the proposed project to ensure that it meets the requirements of the zoning ordinance. You will either receive an approval or a denial abased on those requirements.
Yes, but first you will be required to seek zoning approval by filling out a zoning application which should be accompanied by a copy of your survey showing the area to be paved. The fee for a zoning application is $50. The zoning officer will determine if the proposed paving meets with the requirements of the ordinance before issuing the zoning permit. Paving is limited to less that 50% of your front yard and must be at least five feet from your side property lines. Contact the Building Department at 973-835-0143, ext. 223 for more information.
