Building Permit Information

By obtaining a permit, you are assuring that your project will be designed and completed to meet or exceed all safety standards written by the International Code Council and adopted by the Village of Hampshire.

Please obtain a permit and schedule inspections before scheduling work to be done.
To schedule an inspection, contact the Village's building service, SAFEbuilt.

If you have already created an account for Community Core™, you may log-in and apply for permits from your account.

Any project not specifically exempted in the Village Code requires a permit. See the codes in the Village Adopted Codes page in the left menu.
When in doubt if you need a permit, apply for one.
