Permits are the way the Village of Hinsdale regulates and reviews that all construction in the Village meets life and safety codes. There are several different types of permits based on the applicable building codes (examples include: 2006 International Residential Building and Mechanical Code and Illinois State Plumbing Code). Most residential and commercial projects require a combination permit. In addition, demolition plans also requires a permit.
Obtaining the permit is just the first step in the process. In this step, you will need stamped: architectural drawings (include FAR overlays), Plat of Survey and civil engineering drawings (if applicable) showing the proposed improvements and illustrating the type of construction materials you will be using.
Once plans are approved, you are required to complete the project to those plans. You must seek Village approval first, prior to any potential changes to the plans. All permits will need to be inspected after the work has been completed.
