The Building Division is responsible for enforcing several state and local rules and regulations including the Massachusetts State Building Code and the Town of Belmont Zoning By-laws. For information about the Massachusetts State Building Code, Licensed Contractors or the Home Improvement Contractors program, check out the Massachusetts Board of Building Regulations and Standards.
It is important to complete all necessary permit applications and supporting documents for a permit to be approved. If you are considering a project, please call the Building Division for information about what permits are required.
If you are doing an addition, structural work, increasing the habitable space or number of bedrooms, please submit your permit applications and all required documents in person with the building inspectors during their office hours.
The building permit review and approval process averages 1-2 weeks. Our review process includes a thorough review of all projects for compliance with the Massachusetts State Building Code and the Town of Belmont Zoning By-Laws, as well as verification from the Treasurer's Office that all taxes owed to the Town, by both the property owner and the contractor, have been paid.
Once your project is completed, please schedule an inspection through Inspectional Services
