Thinking about plans for a new shed, deck, fence or home addition?  Zoning approvals (permits) are needed before work begins for fences, sheds, new construction, additions, pools, and many other projects.

In order to receive a permit, the zoning approval letter must be signed by the property owner and a minimum of 4 sets of plans need to be submitted to the Village Administration office.  Though initially the Zoning Code may seem overly strict, the zoning regulations were put in place to preserve the beauty and character of Amberley.

After a complete application is submitted, a permit can be issued if your modifications are within the Village Zoning Code.  For large projects, you’ll need zoning approval from Amberley Village before you can go to Hamilton County for a building permit.  The Village does not require a permit fee and turnaround time is typically 7 to 10 days, however, there are fees for the Hamilton County building permits.

To get started, review the instructions on the zoning approval form.   Questions regarding zoning permits may be directed to the Zoning and Project Administrator Wes Brown at 531-8675.
