How much does a construction permit cost?


Construction permit fees are based upon the type of work proposed. A copy of the Township's Construction Code fee schedule is available.

The cost of a permit for a residential addition to an existing home is based upon its size, known as it’s “cubic volume” of the new building area (NJAC 5:23-2.28) and the number and type of electrical, plumbing and mechanical components installed therein or in conjunction therewith. There is also a State permit fee surcharge for almost all work categories with a cost specific to the project calculated by estimated costs and or cubic volume.
