Building Permit Process
The Town of Hampstead Building department strives to provide exceptional service to our residents and customers.  The Building Code and our Department require that a certain process be followed in order to obtain a Building Permit and make the process smoother and less time consuming.  Below are a few pointers to help facilitate the process:
  • Plan ahead accordingly.  Building projects require thought and prior planning to produce a successful code compliant project.
  • Submit a completed Building Permit Application to our office at 11 Main Street, Hampstead, NH.
  • Provide scaled detailed plans of your proposed project.
  • Provide a site plan showing the size and location of the new construction and existing structures on the site and distances from lot lines.  (for exterior work only)
  • If the proposed work involves a commercial site, prior Planning Board approval may be required.  Commercial projects also require the plans to be stamped by a State of NH licensed professional engineer.
  • Electricians, Plumbers, and Gas fitters are required to show the permit clerk their respective licenses and also a driver’s license or government issued id.
Incomplete applications and plans may substantially delay the approval and issuance of a permit.
