Compliance Officer

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).
