Construction And Zoning Office
Before you begin any construction project, whether big or small, contact the Construction Office at 856-461-1460 extension 5 or [email protected] to determine if a construction or zoning permit (please note, that zoning approval may be required even if the work does not require a construction permit) is required in accordance with the New Jersey State Uniform Construction Code (UCC) and/or the Codes of the Township. Any and all work done without the proper permits is a violation of the UCC and the Codes of the Township of Riverside, and, as such, may result in the issuance of penalties.
Inspections are required at various points throughout construction. All inspections take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays as follows, which is subject to change:
Building 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Electric 8:30 am - 11:00 am
Plumbing and Mechanical 8:30 am - 11:00 am
Fire 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
All inspections must be scheduled a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Inspection requests should be emailed to [email protected].
