Permits

Land Use Permits are issued from the Township.  Land Use Applications can be downloaded here in PDF or accessed here in web format.  The form is also available at the Township office.  If you download the application to fill out, also include a simple drawing showing where your project will be located on your property.  Property owners must obtain Building Permits either from Accredited Services in Waynesboro (ph. 762-7065), or Commonwealth Code Inspection Services in Chambersburg (ph. 262-0081).

Land Use and Building Permit Requirements can be confusing when planning a project.  The following table is provided to illustrate which permits are required in Quincy Township
