Online Permit Center

Welcome to the Town of Andover's Online Permitting Center

The Town of Andover is pleased to offer licensed contractors and home/property owners the ability to apply, pay for, and receive building, electrical, gas, plumbing, mechanical and select Fire Permits online through ViewPermit, our permitting partner. This is the first of a multi-phase initiative for offering and issuing a wide range of municipal permits and licenses electronically in order to provide greater convenience, an enhanced level of service, and to improve the overall customer experience.

Recognizing that this is a new way of doing business, the Department of Community Development and Planning has made a public computer terminal available at the customer counter located on the lower level of the Town Office Building at 36 Bartlet Street to initially register and apply for permits through the online permitting system during normal business hours, weekdays 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Once initially registered and set up, contractors and home/property owners will be able to apply, pay for, and receive permits remotely via the internet from the convenience of their office or home.

Please note Contractors and Businesses (that are contractor based) should register as Contractor in the account setup. Business registration is for non-contractor businesses.

For more information, please contact the CDP Building Division at 978-623-8620 or by email.
