Department Responsibilities

The Town of Boonton Construction Office is responsible for issuing all construction permits and for administering and enforcing the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code. The department consists of a licensed Construction Official, Building, Plumbing, Electric and Fire Sub-Code Officials. 

The process of obtaining permits, approvals and variances can involve several different departments and may seem overwhelming at first glance. We’ve attempted to simplify our explanation by providing you with answers to frequently asked questions and other helpful pages located on the left.

You must call the office secretary at 973-402-9410 ext. 630 to set up any inspection. There is a minimum of 24-hour notice required. Your permit number is required for all inspection requests.

BEFORE you begin . . . 

Regardless of your project, the first step in the process is to review the Zoning and Permit Requirements page and the Tax Assessment Chart to identify any tax implications and to find out if the project requires zoning approval and/or a permit.
