Zoning permits and construction permits are required for any new construction, additions, renovations, and decks. Carbon monoxide detectors, smoke detectors and fire extinguishers are required on all new construction, renovations and the resale of homes.
The Sandyston Township Construction Office has many open permits prior to 2008. If you have an outstanding permit, we ask that you call the building department and schedule an inspection or advise as to the status of the open permit. These permits do require closure and are subject to penalties if final inspections are not made.
