The Newtown Township Codes Department is responsible for administration of the zoning and subdivision ordinance and the building, fire, electrical, plumbing, and
mechanical codes. The Codes Department also administers and enforces locally adopted health and nuisance standards. Plumbing and electrician registrations are processed
and issued here.
This department is also the administrator for the Planning Commission and Zoning Hearing Board through the Zoning Officer.
All inspections performed are to insure that buildings and properties throughout the township are in compliance with the codes and ordinances adopted by the Township Board of Supervisors.
There are four employees who work closely with the Fire Marshal, the appointed Township Engineer(s) and appointed building inspection service.
Questions on whether construction needs a permit can be answered by the Codes Department. Please call (215) 968-2800 x241.
