The Cumberland County Planning and Inspections Department’s mission is to promote a safe, stable, culturally and
economically viable environment for the citizens of Cumberland County through comprehensive and coordinated planning,
with the provision of responsible Code Enforcement and Trade Inspections. We emphasize excellent customer service,
whether enforcing regulations or coordinating with citizens during the planning process.
We have made every effort to provide you with information
that will help guide you in determining how to seek out assistance in matters that
affect your property as well as the services our agency provides.
Cumberland County and the eight municipalities
have made great strides in their land use planning. Numerous plans, policies and
ordinances have been developed through cooperative efforts that serve this entire
community and all of our citizens.
The Inspection Department is now combined with
Planning in an effort to be more responsive to the needs of our citizens and to
promote a more efficient program for permitting and code enforcement. We are
continuing to seek more productive ways to meet the needs of our citizens through
cross-training and "one-stop" permitting.
Planning is a living, changing and continuous
process which requires that we recognize the connections between development and
quality of life. Our staff consists of professional planners who are well qualified
and have received national recognition for their contributions in their respective
fields. We are all committed to the process of working together to ensure that the
best living environment can be provided for all.
If I, or any member of my staff, can assist you
in your development plans, please feel free to contact us.
