The Building Department is responsible for all construction within the Township and for enforcement of the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code. It is Manchester’s desire to insure that all of its citizens are protected to the fullest extent by these codes. Whether you are purchasing or building a new home or remodeling your existing home, our department is here to answer your questions and assist in any way we can. Prior to beginning any home improvement project, please check with us to see what, if any, permits are required.

Thank You,

Mike Martin, Construction Official
