Inspectional Services Department


The mission of the Inspectional Services Department is to ensure that Ashland’s built environment is a safe place for all.  

We ensure this through enforcement of compliance with all Local, State, and Federal Rules and Regulations and perform Electrical, Plumbing & Gas, and Building inspections.  

High-quality service is our primary goal.  If you are planning to apply for a permit, access our Building Permit Portal below.  You can also visit us on the 2nd floor of Town Hall or call the Department with any questions you may have about your project and permits.
