The Building Department interprets and enforces the Massachusetts State Building Code, Architectural Access Code, Plumbing and Gas Code, Massachusetts Electrical Code and the Town of Swampscott Zoning By-Laws in order to insure the public safety. The department also reviews applications and issues permits, conducts field inspections and responds to the request for information and compliance, maintains property records, assists residents, contractors and others, and works with the town departments to help assure consistency, accuracy and access to information.
