The Building Department’s objective is to provide outstanding service to the residents of Litchfield and the contractors who work in our town. The Department is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Connecticut State Building Code and the laws and regulations set forth by the State of Connecticut. It is the Building Official’s responsibility to review all applications and drawings for building and safety code compliance.
The department will issue building permits and all trade related permits, conduct required inspections of all building sites and buildings for which these permits are issued. This is done to insure code compliance in all construction to protect the health, safety and welfare of the people who live, work and visit the buildings within the Town of Litchfield. Certificates of use and/or occupancy are issued after satisfactory completion of all permitted work.
