Permits and Applications

Steps to Apply for Permits

Fill out the applicable permit application (below).  Form must be complete with owner information, address, contractor info/license number ( if applicable), detailed description of work & estimated  value of work. Contractors must include license copy & insurance certificate showing workers comp & liability.  Any incomplete application submittals will be denied.   

Anytime you are expanding the footprint of your home, you will also need approvals from the Zoning and Engineering departments. If you are on septic you must also contact the health department. You must also make appointments with those departments.  It is your responsibility to aquire the necessary approvals. We cannot issue permits without the sign-offs. 

Submit permit form and plans as pdf files for residential and small commercial projects electronically to buildinginfo@trumbull-ct.gov  using www.wetransfer.com. The wetransfer.com website allows you to send a file at no cost. It is mandatory that you submit your file using wetransfer.com.  (We will not receive your files if you email them and they are too large.) 

We will review your application and contact you to discuss payment.  

Any project requiring additional approvals from other departments will be forwarded to the appropriate departments. They may contact you if more information is needed. Work cannot commence until permit is issued.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. 

Send application via email to buildinginfo@trumbull-ct.gov .

You will also need the same departments that signed off on your application to sign off, once your job is complete, to get a Certificate of Occupancy or Approval.
