Building Department

The Town of Norwell Inspections Department consists of the Building Inspector who is also the Zoning Enforcement Officer and A.D.A. Coordinator; the Electrical Inspector and the Plumbing/Gas Inspector.

Please check with the Department before starting any work. Questions dealing with Zoning can be answered at the same department. Building, Plumbing, and Electrical Permits are required when working on existing structures or when constructing new structures. The Building Code, 780 CMR, requires licenses from builders, remodelers, electricians, plumbers, and other specialized disciplines, as well as insurance on all projects. There are some exemptions and you should call the Inspections department for information.
