The Eastchester Building and Planning Department handles a wide range of responsibilities with respect to the built environment within the Town of Eastchester. All development located within the "Town Outside" of the incorporated Villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville is regulated by our department. Our offices are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4:30 except for Town holidays.  You can visit our office during these hours and an appointment is not necessary.  Our phone number is 914-771-3317.

Our staff serves the community under the two general areas of focus:

BuildingWhen buildings are constructed, demolished, modified or altered, permits must be obtained for most work. As part of the permitting process, inspections are undertaken by our staff to ensure any work meets the appropriate regulations. Records are kept in property files for all properties in the Town, excluding the Villages of Tuckahoe and Bronxville which have their own Building Departments.

Our staff also conducts inspections related to code enforcement for existing properties. This includes responding to concerns and complaints from the public.  For reporting issues, concerns, violations or complaints, you will get a faster response by using our online form

Planning - The Town Zoning Law requires some development applications to obtain approval from the Eastchester Planning Board before building permits can be applied for. This process may also require additional review from the Architectural Review Board as well as the Zoning Board of Appeals if an application requires a variance from the Town's Zoning Law. Applications for signs often require review from the Town's Sign Review Committee. Our Department serves as staff for these four boards, which are comprised of volunteer members who live in the Town.
