Permits & Licenses

South Hadley is now live on the new Viewpoint Cloud platform for online permit and licensing.  The legacy Viewpermit system is no longer available.  All applicants who have previously used the online Viewpermit portal will need to sign up for a new account Viewpoint Cloud account.  

If you have a Viewpoint Cloud account with another community it will also work for the Town of South Hadley.

                                               Online Permits & Licenses 

South Hadley uses online permit and license tracking via Viewpoint Cloud. It's an online based system that allows the public to apply and track the permitting and licensing process from start to finish.

First-time users must create an account in Viewpoint Cloud. (Even if you previously had an account in Viewpermit)  You may then apply for (or renew) a permit or license, and pay using a debit or credit card (fee updates coming). You may also print your application and mail payment. You will receive email updates of 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 immediately from your home.
