Are permits required for "replacement" items, such as, sheds, fences, etc.?
Yes.  We periodically encounter residents who "replace" items on their property and think that a permit is not required. Please be advised that zoning and building requirements change over time. In addition, it is possible that original items (i.e. sheds, fences, etc.) did not receive approval when they were initially constructed and do not meet requirements. As a result, permits are required for replacements.
