A sidewalk shed is a structure erected over a sidewalk to protect pedestrians from debris that might fall from work going on above.
Installing Sidewalk Sheds
- To install a sidewalk shed, applicants must:
- obtain an electrical permit from the Electrical Unit
- obtain a construction permit from the Borough Office
A construction permit will not be issued until the electrical permit is obtained.
All sidewalk sheds must be inspected on a daily basis and the results of these inspections must be recorded in a maintenance log , readily available on-site at all times. The Applicant of Record listed on the PW2 is responsible for maintaining the sidewalk shed.
