About the Building Department
The Building Department is responsible for the review, inspection and permitting for new construction and/or alterations to any structures within the Town.

  • Reviews building permit applications and issues appropriate permits
  • Enforces the State of Massachusetts plumbing, gas, and electrical codes
  • Conducts safety inspections of day-care centers, restaurants, educational facilities, and multi-family residences of more than four units
  • Enforces numerous Town bylaws and State regulations

It also has the authority to issue fines on persons or properties violating the Town’s General By-Laws, Zoning By-Laws and Building Code Regulations.

Please Note:

Please be advised as per 780 CMR Massachusetts State Building Code 7th Edition, the Building Official has 30 days to act on an application, and 48 hours to perform an inspection.

We do not foresee this time frame, but please plan accordingly.


newOnline Permitting Available!

The Town of Tyngsborough is happy to announce that homeowners and contractors can apply and pay for permits online. We have partnered with ViewPoint to bring you what we think is the simplest, most intuitive permit issuance software out there.
  • Applications can be submitted online or in-person at Town Hall
  • A self-service kiosk and scanner will be setup for users who wish to use it
Online permitting will save users trips to Town Hall, and will save time as multiple staff members can review the same project simultaneously. If you have any trouble along the way, we will be happy to assist you.
If you have additional questions, please send us an email at [email protected].

 

 

NOTE: To schedule a Safety Plumbing Inspection for a sewer connection, you MUST come to the Building Department at Town Hall and complete the form in person. This cannot be done online through the permitting section.
