Mission/General Information:

The purpose of the Historic District is to preserve the distinctive characteristics of buildings within the District and to preserve the appearance of the District as a whole. The South Britain Historic District Commission administers the Historic District and reviews requests for changes to assure that they meet the standards of the Historic District. All residents of the Historic District are obligated to obtain a “Certificate of Appropriateness” when planning to make certain additions or alterations to their property. Briefly, if you are planning a change to the appearance of your property, either through new construction or alteration, and this change will be visible to the public, you will need prior approval by the Historic District Commission.

Click on "Rules" below for a more detailed description of the jurisdiction of the Historic District Commission and the procedure for obtaining a Certificate of Appropriateness. If you have questions regarding the regulations or the approval process, your Historic District Commission is available to assist you. Please feel free to drop in to one of our meetings.
