Sidewalk Sheds

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.
