** We apologize for any inconvenience as this page is under construction. Should you have any questions please call our Department. **
The mission of the Building Department is to protect the public by reviewing, approving and inspecting the built environment; to impartially enforce all rules, regulations and by-laws that pertain to both the State Building Codes and By-Laws of The Town of Westford; and to assist - to the best of our ability - all customers with any questions, concerns or complaints.
All files are kept in the basement. Phone requests for files will be given an approximate time as to when the files will be available to view. Requests made at the permitting counter may not be immediately filled and may require returning at a later dated or time to view the file.
