Village Code

The code of the Village of Shoreham is a guide to the laws governing our community. Please make sure to familiarize yourself with the code, especially before you start any work on your house, trees, or property.

Building Permits

It is ALWAYS recommended to reach out and ask whether a permit will be needed for your project. As this is a small Village, even minor exempt work may appear to require a building permit. Please email and prior to commencement of work.

A building permit is required for most alterations and/or new structures. There are a few examples of projects that are exempt from this requirement:
  • Detached storage shed of up to 144 SF
  • Fences that conform to zoning
  • Playground equipment
  • Recoverings/repairs in-kind, including siding, windows, roofing, floor & wall coverings/finishes, trim, provided no structural work or changes in configuration of rooms are included.
  • Minor site work, limited to $5,000. Grading & retaining walls will most likely require a permit.

Regarding fences: 
Fences in the front yard may only be up to 4’ in height. In the side and rear yard, they may be up to 6’ in height. Be advised that corner lots are considered to have two front yards, and there may be different restrictions on or along the northern bluff.
Fences must not be made of reflective materials and chainlink fences may not have slats, per local zoning. Chickenwire style fencing is only permitted for interior gardens within a rear yard.


Residents pay a separate annual Village property tax. This tax covers services such as facilities maintenance, roadwork, trash pickup, and snow removal. Taxes are due on September 1.


Parking in Village lots is by permit or guest pass only. Street parking is limited; see the Village code for more details. Entry to the Village hall and beach parking lot requires an electronic pass. Contact the Village clerk to request a permit, electronic card, or guest pass.

Code Enforcement

The Village employs code enforcement personnel to enforce local laws. They are on patrol every day during the summer and less often at other times during the year. If you need police help call 911.

Fire District

The Village is part of the Rocky Point Fire District. The closest fire house is at 49 Route 25A in Shoreham, and can be reached at (631) 744-4102.


Hunting is not allowed anywhere in the Village. If you see someone illegally hunting in the Village please call the DEC law enforcement at 844-332-3267, ext 5, ext 1 to report it. You may also call 911.


The Village has a contract with a carter to handle trash and recycling. Please do not put your trash out the night before (pickup is after 8 am).
