Building Permits

Stockton Springs Zoning Ordinance outlines the rules for building in Stockton Springs. A building permit is required before any construction project begins. It is always a good idea to check with the Code Enforcement Officer before starting any project.

You need a building permit:

  • Change of Use
  • For construction of an addition
  • Activities listed in the Schedule of Uses
  • Any earth-moving or other improvements in the Shoreland Zone or Floodplain
  • Structures accessory to Permit Use

If your building project is within 250' of a water body, a shoreland application is required.


For everywhere else, a building application is required. BUILDING/USE APPLICATION
