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.

FEMA agrees to change some “V” zones in Toms River PDF Print E-mail

As a result of Toms River Township’s continuing efforts to review and monitor the recent and ongoing changes to the FEMA Flood Maps, Mayor Thomas F. Kelaher is pleased to announce that the Township Engineer has received a response to his latest letter to FEMA from December 17, 2013. Robert Chankalian’s letter, among other things, requested that FEMA revisit some areas along the bay front where the “V” zone, or wave velocity line, did not follow the bulkhead. This, in Chankalian’s opinion, erroneously resulted in some homes being placed in the V zone. Mayor Kelaher stated that this would result in significantly higher insurance premiums for those residents.
