The mission of the Code Enforcement Department is to enhance the overall public safety and welfare of everyone who lives, works, and visits the Borough of Kennett Square by enforcement of all Borough Codes and Ordinances.

The department investigates any and all property maintenance, fire safety and life safety complaints as well as reviews and issues any and all building, zoning, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, dumpster, and sign permits.

Inspections on all commercial and residential properties are performed annually and use and occupancy inspections are performed at the change of ownership and occupancy. The Code Enforcement Department also acts as the support for the Planning Commission, ICC Appeals Board and Zoning Hearing Board.
