Building Permit Information

By obtaining a permit you are assuring that your project will be designed and completed to meet or exceed all safety standards written by the International Code Council and adopted by the Village of Hampshire. 

Please review the requirements in the Building Permit Application Packet before you fill out the application to help assure your permit is processed in a timely fashion. Failing to provide the necessary information will likely delay the approval process of your project.

  • For miscellaneous permits, a detailed drawing that clearly shows your plans for construction will be acceptable.
  • State the total number of square feet per floor; total gross floor area (include non-habitable space). Provide this information for each floor, including basement.
  • Height should be measured from grade to the center line of the roof as measured along the front of the building.
  • A plat of survey shall be submitted detailing the foundation location (including process, decks, etc.) and lot grading in accordance with the approved subdivision grading plan and setbacks for front, rear and side yards required for zoning.
