     In July of 2004, Chanceford Township adopted the state-wide building code.  The Township has contracted with Commonwealth Code Inspection Service, Inc. to do building code inspections within the Twp.

     A building permit is required for the following:

Additions to a house
A garage
Any deck greater than 30" off the ground
Any swimming pool deeper than 24"
Any structural changes to a house, garage, or other structure
Any electrical additions or changes

     A building permit is not required for Agricultural Buildings, but a Zoning permit from the Township Office is required.

     In addition to building permits, the Township issues Zoning Permits.  Zoning permits are required for any building, addition, deck, pool, or any other structure.

     Please contact the Township Office to verify whether or not you need a building and/or zoning permit.

Zoning Permits  

All Forms listed below are in PDF format and may be downloaded and printed.  You will need ADOBE READER installed on your computer in order for your computer to download the forms.  If you do not have the latest version, you may download it free from the ADOBE web site.    

This image after a Form or Permit designates that the form may be filled in using your own computer.  The file is in PDF format.  It CANNOT be saved to your computer or submitted electronically so you will need to print out the form after you have filled in all the fields.  To help you fill in the form, after the file loads (in ADOBE READER), click "Highlight Fields" in the upper right corner of the page.
