Building & Zoning


The Township Building is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19. The Township is not currently issuing permits or scheduling inspections. The Governor issued a clarification to the restriction on construction activity that you can view here - 3/31/20 Letter.

You may still submit permit applications for review. All Contractors and Residents are strongly encouraged to submit all building permit applications and plan sets electronically! Payments should also be made electronically when possible. This information can be emailed to the Building and Zoning Department at pfurber@lowergwynedd.org . If you need to make arrangements to send a large format plan please contact Patty Furber.
