The Department of Licenses and Inspections is responsible for the issuance of all licenses, coordination of inspections, enforcement of all codes including building, zoning, use & occupancy, and various other permits. All inspections performed are to insure that buildings and properties throughout the Township are in compliance with the codes and ordinances adopted by the Township Board of Supervisors.
Warminster Township has been fortunate to be the benefactor of a substantial amount of residential and commercial development and re-development over the last ten years. The Township saw tremendous construction growth in 2019 due to the numerous housing developments approved in the last 5 years and some non-residential projects. Many of the new residential developments are fully built out and construction is wrapping up quickly. 2020 will continue to see an active construction trend as projects approved in 2019 begin construction and current homeowners continue projects at their homes. Warminster has also welcomed many new businesses in 2019 and hopes to see the trend continue in 2020, as many large vacant stores begin construction by their new owners. Check the Township’s website for Planning Commission agendas for new development applications.
