Subdivision, Zoning and Deeds

Although there is no zoning within the Town of Roxbury, there are subdivision regulations and recommendations for historic preservation projects and some projects may require site plan review. Click here to be directed to the Planning Board page.

Refer to your deed to determine what, if any, restrictions may apply; sample restrictions range from the size and style of dwelling to restrictions on farm animals. 

Deed restrictions and their compliance are not reviewed or considered when issuing building permits and enforcement of deed restrictions are a civil matter.

To request a copy of your deed, visit the Delaware County Clerk’s Office.

About Septic Systems

Because of our location in the New York City Watershed, there are DEP requirements for septic approval prior to subdivision or construction. 

New septic projects, contact DEP 607.588.7453

Septic replacement, upgrade or other information, contact Catskill Watershed Corporation (CWC)

As indicated on the building permit application, applications for new house construction must include NYC DEP septic plan approval. If applying for an addition that will include a bedroom(s), written approval from DEP must be included approving use of the existing system. (DEP 607-363-7000) 

A Building Permit will not be issued without DEP septic approval.
