The Zoning and Land Development Office is responsible for reviewing all submittals for code compliance using the Zoning Ordinance, Land Development/Subdivision Ordinance.

The Building & Zoning Codes primarily govern building, zoning, sign, road opening, driveway and zoning certification. Some of the key functions of this office include enforcement activities of the building and zoning code(s), and responding to citizen concerns related to such matters. When in doubt, residents should always contact the office to see what, if any, permits are required when constructing structures within Allegheny Township.

The Township currently is under contract with a 3rd party contractor to perform building inspections. The company, Code.Sys, can be reached by contacting the Zoning Office.
