Licenses, Permits & Inspections

The mission of the Nantucket Department of Public Works is to provide and maintain public services necessary for the economy, growth, and quality of life for the citizens and visitors of Nantucket.

The DPW Permit Process exists to manage construction and access abutting Town of Nantucket roads and right of way. However, there are other things you must do before sending anything to Public Works. More information on each on the left bar of this page.
