Yes, and in some instances two separate permits are required. Driveway replacement or widening on your private property requires a permit from the Building Department. Driveway replacement or widening in the public right-of-way (in most cases the area between the sidewalk and road or, if you don’t have a sidewalk, the area immediately adjacent to the public road) requires a permit from the Department of Environmental and Engineering Services.
For more information, view Department of Environmental and Engineering Services webpage.
Whether or not a permit is required depends on a number of factors. Courtesy tree inspections can be requested to make a determination. For additional details, please refer to the Tree Removal or Relocation page.
