Pelham Manor’s codes insure the safety of our residents and maintain the character and quality of life in our beautiful village. Our codes have been carefully drafted and brought up to date to reflect issues such as excessive lot coverage, “McMansions”, “teardowns” and home offices. Our codes are strict but reasonsable and the Building Department enforces them diligently.
We strongly encourage homeowners and their contractors to contact us in advance to discuss their project. We work closely with our residents, their contractors and architects to help them achieve their goals and comply with applicable codes. Another important reason to seek advice before starting a project is that any work started without a required permit triggers a fine equal to two times the permit fee in addition to the required permit fee. Prior consultation also helps homeowners avoid having to remove non-compliant improvements.
