Is a Permit Required?

Whether you are planning a do-it-yourself home improvement project or hiring a professional contractor, a quick call to the Building Department at (847) 634-9440 is a good idea before starting work, to see if a building permit is required. Permits are required for most building projects in order to ensure that they are built in accordance with the Village of Long Grove‚Äôs currently adopted building and zoning codes, amendments to the code, and all ordinances pertaining to residential and commercial construction.  Aside from the review of structural, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing plans, the permit approval process may also include plan examination by the local fire departments for fire prevention and life-safety standards, a review for zoning compliance, an engineering review for Village of Long Grove Stormwater Ordinance compliance, or perhaps an Energy Conservation Code review.  Professional inspections conducted by qualified inspectors throughout the various stages of construction help to make certain that work sites are safe, workmanship is at an industry-accepted standard, and projects are built according to the approved specifications.
