Permitting Protects Us All

Obtaining a Permit (Building, Electrical, Plumbing or Mechanical) protects you and your neighbors by ensuring that all work planned and done is inspected by a qualified New Castle County building inspector.

The small amount saved by evading the permit process can cost you many times over in the future due to shoddy construction, inferior materials and poor workmanship. In addition Home Owners Insurance could be jeopardized.

DO NOT have worked started without obtaining permits.  It could cost you in the future.

Building Permits

Effective November 15, 2016, New Castle County has assumed issuing Building Permits, Mechanical (HVAC) and Plumbing Permits for the Town of Bellefonte.  Below is the process for applying for a Building Permit (For Plumbing and Mechanical, please proceed directly to New Castle County Dept. of Land Use, below):


1 – Zoning Review – The Town of Bellefonte retains approval of Zoning requirements PRIOR to a Building Permit being issued by New Castle County.  This requires a review by the Bellefonte Zoning Review Board (ZRB).  This Board meets weekly on Monday evening at 7 pm (as long as there is an application to review).  Your application either will be approved or disapproved AND RETURNED TO YOU. (Please specify HOW you want it returned; email, US Mail, in person).


  • For a Zoning Review, COMPLETE THIS APPLICATION, and submit it along with a copy of your plans (a mechanical drawing of your parcel, showing the planned development)
  • Submit your application and plans electronically by emailing them to or you can mail or hand-delivery to Bellefonte Town Hall, 901A Rosedale Avenue, Bellefonte, DE  19809.  (if you use FedEx or UPS, DO NOT send with SIGNATURE REQUIRED)
  • Submission deadline for Monday review is Friday, 5 PM.  If received after this time, your review will be scheduled for the following Monday.  Bellefonte ZRB reviews are open to the public and you may be at the review to answer questions if you wish.  (ZRB meetings are not held on Monday holidays. They will be held on the Tuesday of the same week.)
  • Following the review of your plans and application, you will be contacted by the Bellefonte ZRB with the results.

2 – Building Permit Application – proceed with your approved ZRB application and plans to New Castle County Dept. of Land Use:
