Permits and Licenses Online

In an effort to encourage applying online, all permit and license applications submitted using Viewpermit shall receive priority processing.

South Hadley continues to implement online permit and license tracking using Viewpermit.  The online based system allows the public the ability to apply and track the permitting and licensing process from start to end.  Simply create an account in the web portal.  You may then apply for (or renew) a permit or license and optionally pay using a debit or credit card (2.2% + 30¢ fee) or Paypal account (2.9% + 30¢ fee).  You may also print your application and mail payment.  You will receive email updates of the progress of your application.  In many cases your permit or license will be emailed to you once approved.  Tag Sale permits can be printed right on the spot.    

We are working hard to move all permits and licenses across all Town Departments to the Viewpermit system.  Below is the growing list currently available.
