Planning & Development

Please contact the Planning & Development Office prior to using the zoning bylaws/zoning map for any official business to ensure that you have the most up-to-date information.

The Department of Planning and Development encompasses the Planning Board, Conservation Commission, and all Building and Inspection services.
The Planning Board is responsible for administration of the Subdivision Regulations, and they also review some Special Permits (which involves the Zoning Bylaw).
All construction is regulated by the Massachusetts Building Code, Sixth Edition. Building, Plumbing, Gas and Electrical/Wiring permits are available through this office.  Some building activity may also require permits through the Fire Department.
