Grading Permit

Grading Permits may be required for public improvement work, and if special grading and drainage structures are required on individual lots.


Per Township Ordinance #245, which went into effect on October 5, 2022, there is no longer a minimum lot size requirement for Stormwater Management, please see the updated requirements below:


For projects adding 500 – 999 square feet of impervious coverage, the simplified method for managing stormwater should be followed.


For projects adding 1,000 square feet and above of impervious coverage, the fully engineered stormwater management should be followed.


Effective February 2, 2014, all new impervious coverage is tracked cumulatively.


Important: All impervious coverage added after 2/5/2014 is subject to tracking by the Township. All impervious coverage is in the aggregate. For example, if you add an improvement that is under the threshold for Stormwater management, that amount is tracked and added to any further expansion of impervious coverage and all coverage must be managed at that time. Any impervious coverage added over 1,000 square feet is not eligible for the Simplified Approach to Stormwater Management. 

 All projects requiring the Engineering approach to Stormwater Management requires posting of $1,000 Escrow Fee for ongoing inspections, this is kept in perpetuity and is not returned.  The execution of a Professional Services Agreement and a $1,000 escrow fee is also required to cover reviews.   The Professional Services Agreement escrow is returned when the project is complete as long as the account is kept current.
