    The majority of the departments permits must be applied for in person but we have available the online system as well.

    This method should only be used for permits such as:

    Building: Roofing, Siding, and Windows.
    Electrical: Tele/data, Low Voltage.
    Plumbing: Water Heater, Gas lines.
    Mechanical: Furnace/Boiler.
    If the choices available do not apply to you, you must stop the application online and come into the office and pull the permit. If for any reason you choose to continue the application under a false work description your permit will be null and void and you will have to start the permit process over with possible penalty fees.

    Note: Completing the application process does not guarantee a permit, you must wait to receive your permit in the mail. To check on the status of your online application call the main office at 203-946-8045.

    Event Planning Information.

    The City of New Haven has established a Permit and License Center located in the Building Division at 200 Orange Street (Fifth Floor).  This office will accept permit applications and permit fees, issue permits and licenses and assist with obtaining necessary departmental approvals for special events other than permits for use of Parks.  When you go to the Permit and License Center you will be given a permit application form indicating what departments will need to review your plans.  Staff in this office will work with you to coordinate the necessary approvals and to issue required permits. If necessary a meeting with all appropriate departments will be scheduled to expedite approvals. See more information here.
