The Sandwich Building Permit Ordinance was adopted on March 11, 1981 at Town Meeting and states that any alteration, construction, reconstruction or renovation of any structure, septic or well requires a building permit through the Selectmen’s Office.
Building permits are key to ensuring our assessors have the most up-to-date information to address property changes (demolition, construction, renovations, additions, etc.) in a timely and accurate manner.
The Compliance Officer is responsible for reviewing all building permits. At least one site visit is conducted for all building permits, with few exceptions. I do not perform any building code inspections; adherence to State Building Codes is the responsibility of the contractor, property owner(s) or their designated agent, per RSA 674:51 and 155-A:2.
For building permit information, please see the Building Permit Related Page (to the left).
