Do I need to obtain a permit for a shed?

You must obtain a permit for a shed if it is over 120 square feet. Regardless of size, sheds are still subject to setback requirements according to the zoning district your shed will be located in. Sheds over 200 square feet must be placed on a concrete pad. For more information, please contact Kristina Thomas, Assistant Director of Planning & Development, or Nathan Zampogna, Planning Technician 2 at 724-981-0800.
