Building & Zoning Department

As of March 17, 2020,  the Town of Sutton will only inspect new construction that is un- occupied for the inspection.  Other inspections will be limited to protect the health of the residents and our Inspection team. This is an evolving matter and as soon as situations changes we will return to normal operations. Building permit applications should be mailed in or placed in the dropbox on the parking lot side of the Town Hall.
