How much does a Building permit cost in Easttown Township?

All Building permits (including Re-roofing and Mechanical permits) have an application fee and a permit fee. Note: A permit is not valid until the required fees are collected.

As of December 2022,
according to the Easttown Township fee schedule* the application fee is $75 for
residential properties and $105 for non-residential or multi-family properties.

The permit fee for
all building permits is calculated as 2% of the project cost.

Kindly note that
additional fees apply for Certificates of Occupancy (CO). If a building project
requires a CO, a fee will be added to the permit cost upon approval ($75 for residential projects and $105 for non-residential). Should
a residential temporary or conditional CO be requested, another fee will be charged for the additional CO.

*The Easttown Township Fee Schedule is reviewed and
approved annually by the Board of Supervisors. Please be sure to review the
most current fee schedule prior to applying for your permit.
