Land Use and Building Permits
Letterkenny Township residents are required to obtain a building permit for any construction or development within the township. Residents must first obtain a Land Use Permit by visiting the township building during office hours. After receiving the Land Use Permit, you will take it to Commonwealth Code Inspection Service (CCIS) in Chambersburg to apply for the Building Permit. Detached garages and sheds that are less than 1,000 square feet and all agricultural buildings only need the Land Use Permit from the township and do not require a Building Permit from CCIS. A permit is not required for minor repairs to existing buildings provided that no structural changes or modifications are involved. Roof-mounted Solar Panels do require a Building Permit from CCIS. A Raze Permit should be obtained from the Township Office for any structure being torn down. There is no fee for a Raze Permit. See Resolution 2021-1 below for Land Use Permit Fees.
