Do I need a permit for a deck?
A Building Permit is required to build or install a deck. The deck must comply with zoning, wetland, and septic system setbacks. It will also be reviewed for flood plain and building code compliance. A certified plot plan is required with the other conditions if pertinent. Two sets of building plans (see building permit application instructions) must be submitted showing size, spacing of all structural members as well as location of concrete footings.
