Online Building Permits
In working to improve services and convenience to our residents, the Town of Newbury is introducing on line building permits to compliment the on line payments for taxes, auto registrations dog licenses and record copies services that were introduced last fall.
The On Line Permits allow you to apply for building permits on this website without having to go to Town Office or download a paper application, fill it out and drop it off at town office. By clicking on the below link, you will be asked the name of the town then you will be given a menu of the permit applications that are available on line. More than one application may be required for some building projects.
There is a $5.00 fee for each permit application, which can be charged to a credit card. (Credit Cards: 2.95% of transaction amount, MIN charge of $1.50, ACH: $1.50 per transaction.) This is a service fee charged by the processing company and not part of the Town of Newbury building permit fee schedule shown below.
Once you have completed the on line form and submitted it to the Town of Newbury, you will be contacted by the Code Enforcement Officer's office to schedule an appointment or an inspection. The on line permit process does not change the process outlined in the Building Permit Information Package listed above, or the requirements of the Planing Board.
