Planning & Zoning Commission


We are requiring that you submit your Zoning, Subdivision, Special Permit and various other permits online through PermitLink.

Planning and Zoning - For Today and Tomorrow

The Town of Burlington Planning & Zoning Commission works to conduct the development of the town while maintaining the quality of the town -- its land and neighborhoods -- and enforcing regulations established for development.

The Planning & Zoning Commission implements all adopted zoning regulations for the Town of Burlington and processes all applications and permits as defined in the Planning & Zoning Regulations, State Statues and Executive Orders.

We work closely with Burlington's Zoning Enforcement Officer and Building Official to be sure that all development, structures and uses are in compliance with our regulations, Inland Wetlands and Watercourses regulations and our Health District regulations.

Most applications can be found online in PermitLink.  Please read the options on each application to choose which one you are submitting.  For example, for a sign permit you should submit a Zoning permit application online and choose the radio button ‘Sign’.

If you cannot find an application online for your needs or have questions, please call the Land Use Department at (860) 673-6789 x6.
