The manager of New Sewickley Township, is also the Township’s Zoning/Building Code Enforcement Officer and is responsible for enforcing the Township Zoning Ordinances.
When a building/zoning application is submitted to the Township, the Manager reviews the application to see that it is conformance with the Township Zoning Ordinance.
If you are planning on completing any construction you should always make sure that the proper building permits are obtained.
Structures from 200 sq. ft. up to 1000 sq. ft. in size require a Township zoning permit at the cost of $30.00. This includes sheds, garages, pavilions, gazebos and other accessory structures such as metal carports. Structures that are 1000 sq. ft. or greater require both a zoning permit and a building permit for compliance with the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code.
