Permits are required for new construction and a number of revisions that you may undertake on your property. As a general rule, if you are replacing something existing with the exact same, newer item, then you do not need a permit. All other changes to structures and all new construction projects require a pre-construction permit from Factoryville Borough and a building permit from Bureau Veritas.
