Permit fees for residential construction/alterations are listed at the top of each permit application. We extend a discount to residents over the age of 62 years of age, and widows and widowers age 50 and over. This discount is available once per calendar year and eliminates the permit fee for work performed up to $10,00.00.
Plumbing, Electrical and HVAC permit fees are 3% of the total cost.
Permits are required for any alteration, repair, replacement, removal of any building or structure, driveways, sidewalks and curbing, retaining walls, sheds, fences, and such per the Aston Township Ordinance. This excludes painting, carpet, flooring, and interior surface work.
