HANSON BUILDING DEPARTMENT
Our program contains a unique feature which allows applicants to create their own accounts and then actually view the progress of their application as it goes through the Building Department's approval process. By creating their own account, the applicant can also send attachments, communicate with the building department through either a chat or email, and also maintain a history of previously submitted permits, easily and efficiently without any need to~call the Building Department or physically go to the Town Hall. All of the applicant’s information is stored in the account, so that if new applications need to be submitted at a later date, these application forms get pre-filled with the applicant’s information, thus saving a considerable amount of time.
Homeowners are able to submit Building Permits & Electrical Permits only. A licensed plumber or gasfitter has to submit all plumbing and gas permits.
