Surveys May Be Required for Some New London Building Permits
If you are applying for a building permit in New London, you may need to submit a survey. The New London Select Board recently voted to require surveys to be submitted with some applications. Instances where a survey by NH licensed surveyor are required when the property owner request changes in or near site features like wetland, streams or if the property is in any of the town’s Overlay Zoning Districts. The overlay districts include Shoreland, Floodplain, Wetland, Streams conservation, Floodplain, Steep Slope, or other areas that serve to protect natural resources. Also, if the property’s survey is over 10 years old the applicant must affirm in writing there are grounds to believe the survey is reliable. Tax maps should not be relied on to prepare the plot plan for application of building permits. For more information on this new rule contact the Planning and Zoning Office at 526-4821 ext. 20.
