Build Responsibly

Make informed choices when you renovate or build a new home.

Flooding and construction

Living in a floodplain carries with it risk that we can, to some extent, prepare for. If you’re rebuilding, repairing, adding to your home or if you’re constructing a new building, consider your property’s flood risk as part of the construction process. Utilizing resilient construction techniques will save you money in the long run and help to keep your household safe.

All building development that occurs in Bay Head is subject to our building permit process by state law. Before commencing a building project, contact the Building Department to determine what the specific requirements are for proposed repairs, reconstructions, or additions. Flood Protection Assistance for retrofitting your property might be available through the Building Department.

Applicable ordinances

In general, we have several regulations in place to reduce flood risk for present and future construction projects.
