I would like to install a (Deck, Fence, Shed, Pool). What is the process and what do I need to do to get a permit?

Home repairs and renovations add value and enjoyment to your home and property. When residents want to start a new home project they often don’t know how the process of permitting works or what to do first. The Township wants to make this and all information accessible and easy to understand for our residents. We have created the first set of a series of Township Quick Guides that summarize the permitting process for Desks, Sheds, Fences and Pools. Quick Guides can be found online or picked up at the Township Offices at 210 George Street, Reading PA 19605.
