It is important to contact the Zoning Department early in the planning of your project to confirm setback requirements in your zoning district. By doing so, you will insure the proper placement of the structure on your property, avoiding any complications which could delay your project.
If you have a private sewage system, you must also contact Waukesha County for a Preliminary Site Evaluation (PSE) before you can receive a building permit from the village.

Requirements for a deck permit include a survey, a construction plan and permit fee. The survey must show the location of the proposed deck in relation to property lines and other structures. The construction plan must show how the deck will be built with details on spacing, the size and type of materials, and the proper dimensions. A general picture of what the deck will look like is not a sufficient construction plan.
