Do I need a permit to install or improve a driveway or patio?

All installations or improvements of driveways on Township-owned roadways require the submission of a Driveway Improvement Permit.  Link to form: Driveway Improvement Permit

If you are installing more than 400 square feet of impervious surface area on your property (which includes concrete, asphalt, or packed gravel), you will need to  obtain a permit for this work and install Township approved on-site stormwater management controls.

If you are converting an existing gravel driveway or patio area into a paved surface, and the new area exceeds 400 square feet, you will need to obtain a permit for this work and install Township approved on-site stormwater management controls.

Additionally - the State requires that ALL projects using machinery for excavation must be reported via the PA-One Call System.  This can be done on the PA One Call Website - https://www.pa1call.org/PA811/Public/  or by calling 811.

Please contact the Permit Office to obtain the correct permit applications for your project.  Email: permitting@hampton-pa.org or 412-486-0400 x 1304
