Welcome to the
Vermont Permit Handbook
This handbook provides an in-depth compilation
of information on most Department of Environmental Conservation
permit programs and many other Vermont and federal regulatory programs
that may be required for your project or business. Program information
- examples of regulated activities;
- criteria for permitting jurisdiction;
- statutory citations for authority and appeals; and
- contacts for more information.
In addition, fact sheets have been developed for
certain small business sectors that discuss
the most common required permits and provide staff contacts for
more information. For personalized assistance in determining the
permits required for your project, please contact the Permit
Specialist in your area.
The Vermont Permit Handbook can also serve as
an educational resource for individuals, groups or those in public
service wanting to better understand the different types of permits
or other approvals local businesses may be required to have.
Some of the permit or license programs of the
Departments of Fish and Wildlife and Forest Parks and Recreation
are not provided in the Permit Handbook. Links to these permit and
license programs are provided separately.
