The Town of Essex is always working to build a better community. Whether you’re a seasoned developer or a do-it-yourselfer, we’re happy to help you get the job done.

Essex offers available, affordable and well serviced land, a skilled workforce, and easy access to road, rail and air transportation. Regionally, we are centrally located within Essex County, near several major highways, and have easy access to regional, national and international markets.

This section includes information on building and construction, zoning, environmental and heritage planning, property standards and a wide range of related topics.

Visit the links in the menu to the left to discover more about building in Essex, or contact our Planning or Building Department staff to get answers to your building or development questions.
