OPRA (Open Public Records Act) requests are used by the public to gain access to government records. Often requests are for information on a home someone is buying, but can also be for a variety of other reasons, with some limitations by State statute.
If looking for building permit history, and whether there are open and closed building permits, use our SDL portal to look up information. This is often easier and faster than completing an OPRA request.
Here is an example of the information SDL provides.
Follow these quick and simple steps:
1. Click on “use our SDL portal to look up information” link above.
2. Sign up with a user ID and password, or login if you already have an ID and password.
3. If you know the permit number, enter it in the field marked “Check a Status” and click on the green “Go” button.
4. If you do not know the permit number, click on “Full Permit Search” and search by permit number, control number, project number, owner, address, etc.
There is NO CHARGE for this service.
If you have any questions about Building Permits, please contact the Building Department at (732) 827-2087.
