Permit Information and Forms

Building Permits and Inspections

All construction permits for permanent structures and/or improvements including but not limited to additions, detached garages, driveways, sheds, fences, decks, patios, gazebos, porches, pergolas, outdoor fireplaces, swimming pools, sport courts and/or freestanding signs will require the property corner pins of the subject property to be located and clearly staked prior to the pre-pour inspection. It is the responsibility of the property owner to locate and stake the property corner pins.

If the property owner is unable to locate the property corner pins, then it is their responsibility to hire a licensed surveyor to do so. If the property corner pins are not located and clearly staked at the time of the inspection, the inspection will not be conducted and a reinspection fee of $50.00 may apply.

Work shall not commence until this requirement has been met and the pre-pour inspection has been approved. In the event of any discrepancy, the property owner may be required to hire a licensed surveyor to verify the location of the property corners. The Village of Barrington IL does not employ a licensed surveyor and therefore, under state law, cannot locate property corners. We recomment that all property owners utilize a professional land surveyor to verify the location of their property lines.
