Brentwood Borough features desirable commercial space along high-traffic corridors. Prior to opening a business in an existing building, entrepreneurs must complete the Application for Occupancy Permit below. Our department will review the proposal to determine if the business can be established as a permitted use within the relevant zoning district. An inspection will then be performed to verify that the structure meets basic health and safety guidelines. The fee for the occupancy inspection is $100 per commercial unit.
Please note that a building permit is required for any structural renovations, including for the installation of a commercial range hood. The building permit form can be obtained here. Plumbing system replacement or maintenance is regulated by the Allegheny County Health Department. For more information about plumbing permits, visit the county website.
Proprietors or companies who are acquiring ownership of a parcel must follow the property transfer protocol outlined here. Developers who are interested in constructing a new commercial structure must submit a preliminary site plan to the Department of Building Inspection/Code Enforcement and apply for a Planning Commission meeting here.
