Lancaster Avenue, Shillington, PA 19607.  The applicant for a permit may be the homeowner or homeowner’s agent.  No fee is required to submit your application.


2.       For residential applications, the Building Inspector has a 3 week period to review and approve or deny your permit application.  For non-residential, 6 weeks is allotted.  Make sure there are daytime and evening telephone numbers for the Building Inspector to reach you should there be any questions about application.  Most permit applications are returned within 10 days of submission.



3.       After the application has been reviewed and approved, you will receive a letter telling you the permit fee and that the permit will be mailed to you upon receipt of the permit fee.  Checks should be made payable to Borough of Centerport.
