Ron Laurin (Building Inspector/Zoning Enforcement Officer)

General Responsibilities and Duties

The Building Department is to provide for public safety through the administration and enforcement of the State Building, Electrical, Plumbing and Gas codes and the Enforcement of the Zoning By-laws of the Town of Southampton.

A Building Permit is required by the State Building Code to construct, alter, repair, remove, or demolish a building or structure, or to change the occupancy of a building or structure. If you are not sure whether your project will require a Building Permit, please call before you begin construction.

Permit Applications may be picked up at the Town Hall during regular office hours, using the Online Forms link on this page or the Online Permitting link below.

We now have online permitting. Click here for online permitting.
