The Uniform Construction Code (UCC) established in 1976, combines administrative regulations and technical standards adopted by the State of New Jersey for construction.

What is required:
The permit application will require basic information about the project. The scope of the project and the contractors or individuals slated to perform the work must be indicated. For other than minor work, the application must also include sketches, plans or other documentation for review. Application forms are available online. They can be completed electronically at home but will still need to be dropped off or mailed to the Construction Department Office for review. Inspections are required and are necessary to verify whether code standards are met.

The homeowner or contractor should be prepared to furnish the following information when requesting an inspection:

  • Address of the property
  • Permit number
  • Block and Lot numbers
  • Type of inspection required
  • Date the inspection is desired
