Building Department

The Building Department of Redding issues permits for all new construction, alterations, remodeling, additions, renovations, temporary structures, decks, storage buildings, and some repairs. Redding is regulated by State codes officially known as the “Connecticut State Building Codes”. Most permits noted above are issued after approvals from Planning, Zoning, Conservation, and Health Departments.

Today’s Building Department operates under State Building Codes, established by law in 1972, which superseded any and all local town building ordinances. The “State of Connecticut Building Code” is amended and updated by State legislation as requested by the State Building Department. The current State Building Code was updated and adopted into law on October 1, 2016.

The Town of Redding will be using an Electronic Permit Application for all Building Permits beginning on March 20, 2018. In order to use the View Permit service, you will need to register as a user or use an existing registration. Click here for a download of registration instructions and frequently asked questions. You can register by clicking on the “Electronic Permit Application” button or type this web address into your browser Permit Applications will be live from March 20th.
