Permits and Licenses Online

Click to Log In


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 Viewpoint.  The cloud 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 a permit or license, use a debit or credit card to pay the fee (Paypal charge of 2.2% + .30 cents per transaction) and track 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.   

You may also view any current or legacy building or electrical permits, as well as dog licenses.  

We are working hard to move all permits and licenses across all Town Departments to the Viewpermit system.  Below is a list currently available.  Click the Viewpermit icon above to enter the portal.
