If you are considering home improvements such as a new swimming pool, a fence or accessory storage building, etc. many projects will require a permit before work proceeds.
Building permits are needed for, but not limited to: additions, decks, some patios, pools, sheds, fences, garages and driveways. The Codes/Zoning Officer is required to approve a building plan if you are going to add a patio or enlarge an existing patio. He will also have to issue a zoning permit if you want to erect or place a storage building on your property. Certain set backs and constraints would apply to this permit.
You cannot demolish any building for commercial development withut notifying DEP. Notification form can be obtained at: www.dep.state.pa.us - Go to: Asestos. Questions? Call 484-250-5920. For more information on the Asbestos Program, Notification Form, etc., please reference the following:
If a swimming pool is planned, you will need a permit. All pools exceeding a two (2') foot depth are covered by Valley Township Ordinance.
The cost of a permit is nominal and could avoid significant cost that may be incurred if ordinances are ignored. In addition, penalty provisions apply to all construction which proceeds without the proper permit(s) and inspections. We urge everyone to comply with zoning, construction, and public health codes for the welfare of the entire community.
Public water and sewage are availble to Valley Township residents.
Valley Township utilizes the B.O.C.A. Basic Building Code. Permits are issued by appointment after a plan review has been completed. Valley Township enforces the 2009 International Residential Code and International Building Code.
