To eliminate the confusion and inconsistent enforcement caused by the application of myriad local building codes, the State of Pennsylvania adopted the Uniform Construction Code as a framework for all municipalities. Brentwood Borough locally enforces UCC regulations through the Department of Building Inspection/Code Enforcement. The 2009 Uniform Construction Code contains stringent restrictions regarding construction practices, fire safety, plumbing, mechanical equipment, and other critical building systems. For more information, visit the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry page on UCC administration. The International Code Council provides limited viewing access to the text of these codes at their organizational webpage.
New construction in Brentwood Borough is also regulated by Chapter 183 (Subdivision and Land Development) and Chapter 210 (Zoning) of the municipal code. This information is available online at the Borough Code portion of our website.
To supplement its local property ordinances, Brentwood Council has also chosen to adopt the 2012 International Property Maintenance Code. The International Code Council also hosts the text of this booklet online.
