Additionally, some construction and demolition projects require building permits. For all building permit questions and application, contact our third party building codes company, Erb Inspections.

Mansfield Borough has also adopted a Subdivision And Land Development Ordinance (SALDO). Any land subdivision requires a formal subdivision review and approval. Certain residential and most non-residential development requires a formal land development review and approval. Please be aware that some projects could also trigger a stormwater management review and/or a floodplain review.

Permits are also required for planting and/or removal of shade trees as well as street openings.
