In order to streamline the process of obtaining a permit, please read the information below for helpful tips and reference the chart for the required forms for frequently applied for permits.  Not every scenario could possibly be represented so please call the office at 732-390-7077 or email constructiondept@sayreville.com if you have any questions.  Once you view the chart and see which forms are required for your permit, go to the Forms Center to print the appropriate forms.  All permits are required to include the PERMIT JACKET as well listed in the Forms Center.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Licensed professionals are required when work is being conducted on anything other than a single-family, owner occupied detached dwelling.

  • Make sure your licensed professionals sign and seal when and where it is necessary.

  • You as the homeowner can do the work if your home is a single-family, owner occupied detached dwelling – just write “self” in contractor part.

  • If plans are required we need two sets to be dropped off.

  • Fill it out as clearly and neatly as possible to the best of your ability. Make sure to include estimated cost of the work where asked.

  1. Additions, Dormers, Garages, Sunroom, Carport, Patio, Roofs
