The Town of Bethany Building Department is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Connecticut State Building Code, along with relevant town ordinances. The department’s role is to safeguard the public health, welfare, and safety through the permitting process and demonstrate compliance of the structural and safety requirements of the State Building Code.
The department is responsible for the issuance of all building permits for the design and constructions related to residential and commercial structures within the town. The department handles all permits related to electrical, plumbing, heating and air conditioning and demolition. The process includes the review of plans for technical compliance with the CT State Building Code, and the inspection of the project during various phases of construction.
Inspections not related to new constructions would be issued a Certificate of Approval as assurance that the work performed on the permit issued for the job substantially meets the final inspection requirement of the Building Code as inspected and granted by the Building Official.
The issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy or a Certificate of Compliance at a project’s completion is a property owner’s assurance that the construction performed substantially meets the structural and safety requirements of the State of Connecticut Building Code and the Town of Bethany.
