Building & Construction
All building and construction projects, including those done by homeowners, must be permitted by the Town of Nederland. The Nederland Municipal Code provides general guidance for project managers and contractors. Chapter 18 concerns building regulations, and Chapter 16 concerns zoning.
The Town of Nederland processes all building permit applications at Town Hall. The Town contracts with SAFEbuilt for plan review and all inspections. Streamlined review for standard residential or small commercial rooftop flush-mounted PV systems is available, and the Town accepts NABCEP PV Installation Professional certification.
The Town requires all new residential and new commercial projects, or projects being built on sensitive land, to meet for a Site Plan Review with Town staff prior to applying for a permit.
The Town requires any applicant proposing to excavate for a project, moving more than 50 cubic yards of earth, to pull an excavation permit in addition to their building permit. Any work done in the public rights-of-way, requires a permit as well.
