To ensure the health, safety and welfare of the public, through proper administration of the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code, conducted in a courteous and professional manner.
The Harding Construction Office is responsible for construction permits, inspections, and code compliance as required by the State of New Jersey Division of Codes and Standards and Harding Township. Many of the requirements are state requlated, but the local jurisdiction also regulates improvements and very often must be pre-approved before a NJUCC permit can be issued. Therefore, in additon, your construction project may require approvals from other agencies such as Harding Township Department of Health, Engineering, NJDEP and Historic Preservation to name a few.
Our goals are to ensure safety for our residents and to provide high-quality customer service so that people seeking to improve their properties or expand their businesses can proceed expeditiously, while meeting all legal obligations.
Generally speaking, permits are needed for all construction improvements, except for ordinary maintenence. We highly recommend that you contact us before beginning any project as we understand each project is unique, We would be glad to assit in which permits and approvals will be required to complete.
The office is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Our inspectors are available at various hours Monday through Friday. Please call 973-267-8000 Ext 716 with any questions you may have about permits.
