When Applying for a Building Permit


1) Call the Cornwall Borough Office to be placed on the agenda for the Planning and Zoning Commission Meeting. The meetings take place on the first Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at Borough Hall. All projects must be approved by the commission before being submitted to the county. Please provide a plot plan and a description of the project as well.

2) After being placed on the agenda, schedule an appointment with the Water /Sewer Department to get a water/sewer easement. You can download the  “Application for Zoning Review”  and email the completed form to cornwallinfo@cornwall-pa.com. You will need this letter before the County grants you a permit.

3) After your project is approved by the Commission and you obtain a water/sewer easement, you can then schedule an appointment with County Planning (717-228-4444) to receive a permit.
