Building Department

Building Dept. Hours: Monday-Friday 1:30PM to 4:00PM

DISCLAIMER:  Chesprocott and Zoning approvals are required prior to applying for building permits  for garages, additions, decks, pools, Accessory Living Units and sheds.  The Building Department also requires a plot plan showing the location of the building  and construction drawings with dimensions for the project. 

The Prospect Building Department promotes the general health and safety of the residents of Prospect, to assist the citizens with the code and permit process, to work with developers and contractors in achieving their goals and work with other town departments for a coordinated effort.

We believe in equitable treatment for all individuals regardless of circumstances and strive to enforce all building codes in a fair and considerate manner. Through education and cooperation, we believe we can and will build positive working relationships within the building community, consumers and citizens alike.

We strive to achieve these goals and contribute to the overall mission of the town by:

  • Administration and compliance of the codes and standards adopted from the State of Connecticut that regulate building construction.
  • Provide information to the public and to assist them in understanding and the application of the adopted codes
  • Insure that those individuals and companies that do business in the town meet the regulatory standards set forth in the building codes for the business and occupation in which they are operating.


As a reminder, the Building Department is open from 1:30pm to 4pm.

Thank you
