Online Permitting Now Available at City of Bedford

The City is excited to announce the introduction of a new online self-service permitting system. Over the next month, the City will be transitioning from its current paper-submittal process to electronic submittals through our online self-service portal. You can now submit, pay, and receive your permit without leaving the office.

Any permit you would typically request through the Building Inspections Division is now available online (building permit, plumbing permit, certificate of occupancy, etc). This easy-to-use system will provide contractors and Bedford residents with the ability to submit permits at any time of day and any day of the week, track the status of their permit easily, and directly communicate back/forth with the appropriate City staff about their permit. This new system will provide for a simpler, more transparent, and expeditious permit process. 

If you’re ready to jump in, please log in to to Create an Account (in just a few simple steps) and get started.
