*Pool Regulations: The State of New Jersey now requires a permit and fence protection for any pool installed that is 24 inches or deeper, regardless of overall size or square footage. Please be advised that swimming pools are not to be used until all final inspections have been completed. The final building and electric must be approved for your protection.
Obligations During Construction:
- Any work which does not conform to the approved plans will require re inspection. If the work continues without resolving the problem, the applicant will be fined and the job stopped.
- Applicants are required to post the Permit prominently on the site and to keep a copy of the approved Plans at the site.
- When the project is completed, the applicant must call for Final Building, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Inspections prior to occupying.
State law mandates that the Construction Official issue a fine to any person who performs work without a Permit if the construction is of a nature which requires a Permit.
Construction Code Official – Peter Carbone
What happens after the permit is issued?
Periodically, inspections will be required. In the case of some work such as roofing or siding, there will only be a final inspection needed. All inspection requests will require at least 24 hours notice prior to the date your inspection is needed. Once the work has been completed and final inspection has been approved, a Certificate of Approval or Certificate of Occupancy, depending on the type of work done, will be issued. The Construction Office will not send a copy of the Certificate unless you request one. A copy will be kept on file with the Building Permit.
