In an effort to make it more convenient for our residents and businesses, the Village of New Lenox has created a website that allows users to submit building permits and renew contractor online from the convenience of their home or business. The website will also allow you to track the progress of your permit or registration and schedule inspections, if required.

Once on the permit website and after a user account has been created, simply click on the building permit or registration you would like, fill out the requested information, and upload any required documents. When you are ready, submit your application for Village staff to review. Once approved, you will receive an email notification that you can pay online.

Please note that at this time, only the permits and registrations listed above can be applied for online. All other permit applications will need to be applied for in person at Village Hall. 


In order to get started, you will need to create a user account.  The information that is entered will be used when processing the different applications. If you are creating a residential account, you can skip the “Request Access” section.   If you are a Business, Home Occupation or Contractor, it is important that your user account be created as a business account. 

You will need to provide the information listed below during the application process or your building permit and/or registration will NOT be successfully submitted to the Village of New Lenox staff for processing.  If you have hired a contractor to perform the work, the contractor must be registered with the Village or your permit cannot be submitted online.

Required documents will be uploaded and need to be one of the following formats: PDF, JPG, PNG, TIFF, TXT or Microsoft Office document. (Maximum file size: 25MB.)
