The Department of Inspections provides for cooperative inspection and enforcement of all Construction Codes relating to the construction, maintenance, use and occupancy of buildings and structures.
BUILDING INSPECTION DEPARTMENT DROP-BOX
Inspection Department has a drop box for permits, applications and payments located at the SIDE entrance of the Croydon Hall building (900 Leonardville Road). The box is available 8:00 AM-3:00 PM Monday-Friday. All items placed in the box MUST be placed in a sealed envelope. Please do not use the Letters-to-Santa box in the front of the building.
A New Jersey licensed architect is recommended for the preparation of plans for major projects. Major projects may need to include floor plans drawn to scale, sections, elevations and details. Minor projects such as decks and small additions can be drawn by a homeowner.
The Construction Inspection Office has standard specifications that can be followed within certain limitations for routine projects such as decks and retaining walls. These specs along with a plot plan/survey depicting your project are accepted as the required plans.
There are some projects which require a New Jersey licensed engineer to prepare plans. Examples are an in-ground pool, grading plans and retaining walls more than 4 feet in height.
