A new business needs to obtain a certificate prior to occupying the tenant space.
If you are not making any changes to the interior of the space other than paint and carpet/flooring, or if you are taking ownership of an existing commercial space, you’ll need to complete an Application Packet for New Tenant-New Owner Certificate (Commercial Use).
The township will confirm the new business is permitted and that the building can be occupied.
The business will be registered with Evesham Fire-Rescue, so that officials have contact information in case of an emergency.
If changes will be made to the interior of the space, a Construction Permit is required. Please contact the Construction Office at (856) 983-2914 ext. 4 for further details or questions.
A Construction Permit ensures the work performed conforms to fire and building codes and is inspected and certified by licensed construction inspectors. This protects individuals and the community. Also, if you have an insurance claim related to any work done without permits, your carrier might not pay the claim. They often check with the township to confirm permits were issued.
