Building & Engineering
The Development Department consists of the combination of four existing departments under one umbrella. These divisions consist of the Building Division, Engineering Division, Planning Division and Zoning Division. The eight staff, consisting of the Building Inspector, Assistant Building Inspector, Deputy Town Engineer, Junior Engineer, Environmental Coordinator, Office Manager, Planning Board Secretary and Zoning Board Secretary from each of these divisions work cooperatively together under the supervision of the Town Planner to implement the functions within each of the Divisions. The Development Department provides staff support to the Town Board, Planning Board, Zoning Board of Appeals, Environmental Review Board, Conservation Board, Board of Architectural Review, and the Beautification Advisory Board.
Administrative responsibility for the Development Department is vested in the Town Planner. The Building Division and the Engineering Division serve as the building, zoning and code enforcement division of the Town Government.

The Town of New Castle's first comprehensive plan was adopted by the Planning Board in 1958. The most recent Town Development Plan was adopted in November of 1989. Much of the data and background materials for the 1989 Town Development Plan were compiled in 1984. The Town Board is looking to update the Town Development Plan once again. Much has changed from 1989 to the present. The Updated Master Plan will reflect this change and speak to the future of development in New Castle.
The Town Board has appointed a 5-member Steering Committee to work with the Town Planner to develop the Master Plan Update and they have hired the Pace Land Use Law Center to assist the Town with the Master Plan Outreach and Education process.
The Town of New Castle has been working towards improving the Downtown Chappaqua Hamlet for many years. Lots of effort has been put into studies and plans and now its time to put things into action!
In 2013 the Town Board released an RFP for design and construction services to develop and implement a comprehensive infrastructure (water, sewer, stormwater and traffic) and landscape design, and streetscape improvement plan for the Chappaqua Hamlet. Right now WSP Sells is investigating and analyzing information to provide designs for the Town Board to consider this Fall.

TOWN OF NEW CASTLE STORMWATER
Stormwater run-off occurs when rainfall and snowmelt is unable to permeate and soak into the ground. As a result run-off flows across impermeable surfaces such as sidewalks, driveways and the roadways picking up debris and pollutants along the way.
As land is developed more and more natural vegetation and tree cover is stripped away, the ability to naturally filter storm water is reduced. Most run-off makes its way untreated into storm sewers which eventually discharge into streams, waterways and bodies we use for drinking, swimming and fishing.
Pursuant to the Clean Water Act (CWA) and in accordance with the Environmental Conservation Law of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation the Town of New Castle Enacted Local Law No.3-2007 known and cited as Chapter 108A: Storm Water Management and Erosion and Sediment Control.
Certain construction activities may be regulated by the Town of New Castle under Chapter 108A, in addition to wetlands permits which quality as a land development activity. In addition certain construction activities may be regulated by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and require a SPDES General Permit for Storm Water Permit for Construction Activity.
Yearly, under the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation SPDES General Permit for Storm Water Discharge, the Town is required to submit an annual MS4 Annual Report, outlining public involvement and participation, monitoring of pre and post storm water construction management and pollution prevention. Preparation is a coordinated effort of various Town Departments and Town Staff.
General inquiries regarding storm water runoff and permitting should be directed to the Town's Engineering Staff at 914-238-4723 or 7273. Questions related to catch basin cleaning or storm water piping to the Department of Public Works at 914-238-3968.
