Land Use & Building Office Coronavirus Information

Online & Remote Applications and Payment



As the State and The Town of Belmont remain open, we will try to keep congestion in Town Hall to a minimum. We are open to walk-ins maintaining 6' physical distance. One thing that we discovered when Town Hall was closed is that filing applications for planning, zoning, building permits, and driveway permits by email or regular mail works well and we will continue with that.


Most resident questions, permit applications and other services can be addressed online or via phone or email, or, if necessary, you may schedule an appointment to meet in Town Hall with the appropriate Town personnel to complete your transaction.  As always, Land Use staff will be working on-site and we will continue to be at your service during normal business hours (7:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday - Friday).


We recommend initiating inquiries and permit submissions via phone by calling the Land Use Office at 603.267.8300X119 or emailing:
