Building Division

The job of the Building Department is to ensure the safety and welfare of the general public by enforcing all State and City Ordinance Building Codes.

Apply for a Permit

The City of Revere now requires that all permits overseen by Building Department staff be applied for online only through the City’s epermitting portal (if you get a 404 error hit refresh and it should work). This includes Building, Plumbing, Gas, Electrical, Mechanical, Sheet Metal Permit, a Certificate of Occupancy, or for Site Plan Review.*

(if you get a 404 error hit refresh and it should work)

Due to the particularly high level of construction taking place in the City at the moment, please allow extra time to await a response from the Building Department.

Note that by state law, any contractor who has not uploaded into the system a valid contractor license or completed a Workers’ Compensation Affidavit will not be issued a permit until the correct information is made available.

You must provide a working email address where responses from the Building Department can be sent and will be read. Responses may include corrections needed on your application, or a request for payment for an approved permit.

* IMPORTANT: Weekly Site Plan Review Submission Deadline. To fully comply with the Massachusetts Open Meeting Law, Site Plan Review applications are due no later than 4PM on the Wednesday preceding the next regularly scheduled Site Plan Review Committee meeting. Applications received after the deadline will be placed on the agenda for the following regularly scheduled Site Plan Review Committee meeting.
