Building Inspector

The Borough of Ambler requires building permits for various construction projects, including new construction, additions, storage sheds, roofing, fences, pools and others. Whether it is as simple as building a shed or deck, or as complex as a new home or an addition, the borough realizes that there are many things to consider when undertaking a new construction project. The borough tries to make the permit process as simple as possible for homeowners, business owners and contractors.

To find out whether or not your project would require a building permit, to schedule an appointment for inspection, or for any other building permit-related questions, please contact the Borough of Ambler Code Department at 215-646-1000, ext. 112 or
