This office is the enforcement arm of the Planning and Zoning Commission, and enforces the Town of Greenwich Building Zone Regulations (BZR's). We are located within the Division of Building Inspection for logistical purposes relating to building permits and historic building records.

Every application for a building permit and some licensed trade permits must be first reviewed for zoning compliance before the Division of Building Inspection will accept the application for their own review and issuance. The Zoning Enforcement Officer as well as the Building Official must sign all certificates of occupancy before becoming effective. This process is handled through a Zoning Permit and Zoning CO Certification application (two copies required for any submission).

In addition to review of building permits, the Zoning Enforcement Office investigates violations of the Building Zone Regulation's, which may include location of structures, illegal dwelling units, illegal uses of property, sign violations, site plan violations, and coastal flood hazard violations. The Zoning Enforcement Office attempts to work cooperatively with the person responsible for a zoning violation in order to achieve compliance with the Building Zone Regulation's. If, after a series of notices, the violation has not been addressed, the matter is referred to the Connecticut State's Attorney's Office for criminal prosecution, additional civil litigation may also be initiated.

The Zoning Enforcement Office also acts as the staff for the Planning and Zoning Board of Appeals. For that reason the Planning and Zoning Board Appeal applications are received at the Division of Building Inspection. The staff prepares public hearing agendas, attends all Board hearings, and maintains the Planning and Zoning Board of Appeals records.
