Aston Township, Delaware County PA

Building / Code Department

All permits are the responsibility of the owner of the property.
Permits MUST be posted prior to the start of the work.

 In 2013 the Aston Township Building and Code department has been revamped and restructured to include a Third Party Building Code Official, Pennoni Associates. The addition of Pennoni Associaties serving in this capacity gives the Township the advantage of acquiring countless years of experience, an abundance of knowledge, and a variety of talented individuals to ensure that all projects that fall under the jurisdiction of the UCC are given the utmost attention. Individuals from Pennoni Associates will serve hand and hand with the current Code Enforcement Staff and all Township employees to ensure that the department is actively enforcing the Ordinances of the Township.
