2022 Street Sweeping Schedule

If you can move your car off the street on the schedule we would appreciate the assistance! Schedule may change due to weather or unforeseen needed changes, we will post updates as needed. Click here to view the 2022 Steet Sweeping Schedule.

Beginning January 4, 2022, Bristol Township will no longer require any inspections or certifications for residential resales. A Residential Change of Occupancy Permit will be required, so that we can update our database and make sure all existing permits have been closed out prior to sale of home.  All certifications including chimney, heater and electrical are no longer necessary, nor is a resale use and occupancy permit. The sewer lateral inspection is still required for all resales in the Croydon Wastewater Treatment Plant Service Area. The Residential Resale Change of Occupancy Permit Application can be downloaded by clicking here. Any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to li@bristoltownship.org or 215-785-0500. We hope you find this to be of assistance when selling your home and welcoming when moving into Bristol Township!
