Zoning permits are required in order to erect, construct, enlarge, alter, repair, or improve any building, structure, or signs—if said activities require a building permit under the Uniform Statewide Building Code. For new dwellings, water and sewer connection fees must be paid before a zoning permit is issued. Zoning permits must be obtained from the Town of Dayton before a Building Permit is issued by Rockingham County.
