Inspections

We conduct the following types of inspections in Brandon Township:

Driveway Ordinance

The inspections are conducted under the authority of the Brandon Township Zoning Ordinance.  We conduct an inspection just prior to the rough building inspection by the Building Department and a final inspection prior to occupancy.  The driveway Ordinance can be found HERE.

Some of the basic issues are:

  • The driveway must be 12 feet minimum at the base of the drive.
  • The overall clearance must be 14 feet minimum (this would be the distance between trees).
  • The minimum height clearance must be 14 feet.
  • At the final it must have a surface sufficient to hold the large fire apparatus.
  • The driveway can only service one parcel.
  • The driveway must be 30 feet from any existing driveway.

 

Addressing Ordinance

The inspections are conducted under the authority of the Brandon Township Zoning Ordinance.  We conduct an inspection just prior to the rough building inspection by the Building Department.  The Addressing Ordinance can be found HERE.

Some of the basic issues are:

  • The numbers must be legible from the roadway, at the driveway, day or night.
  • At the rough inspection it can be a temporary sign.
  • At the final it must be a permanent sign.
  • No further inspections will be conducted without an address being posted.

 

Plan Review

Plan reviews are conducted of private roads and new commercial construction.

 

Commercial Use Change and Occupancy

These inspections are conducted under the authority of the Fire Prevention Ordinance.  They require plan review approval and site approval.  Click HERE to review the Private Road Ordinance.

 

Annual Inspections

Commercial buildings are to have an annual inspection, along with a site survey to collect information in the event of an emergency and to indicate any hazards pertinent to firefighting.
