Old King's Highway Regional Historic District Committee


The Town of Brewster is pleased to announce that our Health and Building Departments recently launched a new online permitting platform, that can be accessed here.

This is a web-based permitting system that allows contractors and homeowners to create an account, apply for permits, upload required documents, and pay permit fees all in a few easy steps. The system also sends out regular email notifications to applicants for each step in the process, including approvals and inspections (some limitations apply).

The district is designated as the area north of Route 6 (the Mid Cape Highway) from Sandwich to Orleans. Each Town has their own Historic District Committee. The Town of Brewster Old King's Highway Historic District Committee reviews applications for any change in the exterior of buildings and structures, fences and signs, and applications for new construction or demolition.

Settings, site design and layout and relative size of buildings are also taken into consideration.
