Permit Requirements

Required submissions when applying for a permit are as follows:

Completed application (available in our office, Room 100) with a signature from the Tax Collector

Set of plans (three for new construction)

Maps, drawings, plot plans, heat calculations, etc.

Certificate of Insurance for Worker's Compensation OR State of CT Worker's Compensation Affidavit if you are a sole proprietor/home owner

Letter of authorization if agent is filling out application (Click here to see who may sign)

Payment of permit fee in the form of cash or a check made payable to "Plainville Building Department" (a valid driver's license is also required for any payments made by check)

Please Note: 

We require all of the above to process an application for a permit. If you do not have all of the above when you come in to apply, you may have necessary information faxed to us while you wait. We cannot accept payment or process permits without having all of the above required material.  

Each permit type (building, electrical, HVAC, plumbing, etc.) is processed separately. We do not issue "blanket permits."


Permits are not processed through the mail due to the required signature on the application from the Tax Collector. Thank you for your understanding.
