Do I need a permit for a shed at my house?

A shed under 200 square feet does not require a building permit. Although, a Land Use Permit is required for any size shed. Therefore, a Building and Land Use application will need to be submitted with a Plot Plan showing where the proposed shed will be located. If you do not have a Plot plan, one may be obtained from the property file at the Building Safety Department.
