Building Permits Frequently Asked Questions


The Town of Shrewsbury and the Building Inspector’s Office is publishing the below information responses as a public resource for general reference purposes ONLY. 

These are not intended for, nor will they supersede, any applicable building code, zoning bylaw or Commonwealth statute. 

The Town of Shrewsbury will make every effort to keep this list updated, and where possible reference the applicable regulatory statue.  However, no information on this website should be considered as legally binding for code compliance.  The information here is offered as a guide for reference only.

Please refer to the code applicable for your project.  If you are still unsure after reading this, contact us during normal office hours (as listed elsewhere on this page).

Thank you for using our website.
