Permits Required

Are you considering a home improvement project? YOU MUST APPLY FOR A BUILDING PERMIT. You can download the Permit Form from the Forms page.

Residents are reminded that the Northfield Township Road District, Cook County and the surrounding Villages require permits for most projects. Permits, which protect homeowners, must be obtained before work begins.

If you are not sure your project requires a Township Permit, call the Road District at 847-724-7055. Allow at least 21 working days for review and permit approval from the Road District. For more information on the Cook County Building & Zoning process, call 312-603-0500.
