Byram Towship Spatial Data Logic Portal (SDL) Online Permit Portal            (For OPRA Requests you will be directed to use the Portal):

In order to better serve the customers of the building department, Byram Township has opened a public internet portal that allows access to construction permit records and application status.

One of the many features SDL offers is the ability for public internet access to construction permit records and application status. By utilizing this free service, members of the public can search construction permit records and application status on their own from any internet-capable device.

For a tutorial on how to do this, visit

Secondly, if you have an open permit and would like to schedule inspections, you can use the portal to accomplish this as well.

The portal is available here: - you will be required to create an account to search records or schedule inspections. Click “Create an account” on that page to do so.
