How long does it take to get a permit?

The permit review process varies based on the type of permit and the number of applications under review at a given time. 

The following permits can be issued the same day as the application if all of the required documentation is submitted:

  • Fences (no zoning relief required)
  • Sheds (designs that do not require final inspection)
  • Above-ground pool / hot tubs that meet all New York State requirements

All other permit applications are reviewed in the order they are received. Generally, the review requires 7 to 10 business days. However, during peak building season, the reviews may take up to 15 business days.
