The Building Department will continue to take permits and complete inspections until further notice.

For scheduling of inspections please call our phone number (203-256-3036) We have a new protocol for the safety of our inspectors and the public. If the inspection is for an occupied building, residential or commercial, you must provide a contact person and a location to meet the inspector. When you call for inspections you must have your permit number ready to give to our office staff. We will not enter the occupied building if someone is sick or feeling ill, or someone recently traveled abroad. You and all occupants must maintain 6 foot distance to the inspector. If the inspector is uncomfortable with the conditions he will leave.

The Building Department will continue to take and process building and mechanical permits. All of our permit applications can be found on the link below.
