Building Department

Mission Statement:

It is our mission to provide the Town of Acushnet with accurate and efficient guidelines to ensure the safety of all construction and repair projects to buildings and property located within the town. The Building Commissioner enforces the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Building Code and the Acushnet By-Laws.  The Building department is also responsible for the uses and occupancy of all buildings, structures and land within the town.

The Building Department can assist you with the following services:

  • Building Permits
  • Electrical Permits
  • Gas Permits
  • Plumbing Permits
  • Wood/ Pellet Stove Permits
  • Demolition Permits
  • Scheduling Inspections

Visit or Call your Local Code Official:

The Code Official will ask "What are you planning to do?" and "Where are you planning to do it?".  Then, the Code Official will explain the requirements (codes/ordinances) regarding your project.  You will then be asked to apply for a building permit.  This initial contact will provide the resources and information you will need to make your project a success and avoid potential problems which could cost you time and money.


Important Note: A paper application will be accepted for an additional $10 fee. Paper applications may delay the issuing of the permit, especially if all the information required is not submitted. Required information:  Application must be completely filled out and submitted with a copy of your License, Certificate of Insurance, State Workman's Compensation Affidavit and your current Email.
