Typical Residential Home - Building Permit & Construction Inspection Process PDF Print E-mail

Constructing or raising a new home can be a little confusing for those who have never gone through the zoning, engineering, and building permit process before. To help guide you along, we have created the attached flowcharts which outline the entire process. Here you can see the entire work flow from design, review, permitting, construction, and inspection, all the way to the final Certificate of Occupancy/Approval.  The chart is color coded by task, and each color corresponds to the party responsible for performing that function.

These charts helps to show not only what you as an applicant has to do to obtain permits and inspections, but it also shows you what actions the Township staff has to do to ensure the home is constructed properly, and most importantly, safely.

Any specific questions can be always be directed the Building, Zoning or Engineering Departments.

1) All properties in the Toms River Township barrier island section north of Lavalette will be inspected for the purpose of reconnection to electrical service. These inspections will be completed by 1/5/2013. The Township is working with JCP&L to re-energize as soon as possible. Many meters have already been set. If a “Not Approved” notice is left on your premises, repair work must be completed and a re-inspection will be required.


2) Phone Call Volume within the Building Department: The volume of calls has been overwhelming. The Administration is working to address this situation with supplemental phones and personnel. Please be patient until this issue is resolved.
