Douglas Wilhelm, Building Code Official and Zoning Officer
215-536-5001

The Code and Zoning Department provides the administration and enforcement of regulatory ordinances adopted by Borough Council to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the residents and businesses in Quakertown.

Since the Zoning and Code Enforcement Officers are often in the field, it is necessary to schedule an appointment for information and to issue certain permits. The UCC (Uniform Construction Code) has been adopted as the Building Code of the Borough of Quakertown for Building, Plumbing, Fire, Mechanical, and Maintenance projects.

A copy of the Zoning Ordinance including a map can be purchased in the Zoning Office or can be accessed by going to the Codification of Ordinances at General Code.
