  • 52 Linnea Avenue Brockton, MA, 02301, USA - Ward 3
    This property is doing outside construction again without a permit. This time it's a deck attached to the house. One night they worked up until 9:45pm; the two days prior they were hand-mixing the cement, and put 3 layers of concrete block filled in with dirt and a thin layer of cement over that. We don't know if they are doing it correctly because they shoved in the beam brackets while the cement was still wet. We understand that a permit is needed for installation and repairs. Please check out the safety of this impending deck.

    In late winter/early spring 2021, this single-family home was receiving a remodel when a "cease and desist" sticker was placed on its front door. When work resumed, drastic construction ensued, including a full-height addition. House is still unfinished, and property is zoned R-1B. Front lawn was replaced with a gravel parking lot. Resident has a fleet of matching white vans in front, often more than a dozen. Some vehicles are parked overnight and in the morning. The business is related to roofing and siding, and/or HVAC, as very long extension ladders are on top of the mostly “unidentified with a company name” trucks. Dumpster on right rear of new addition seems to be permanent and contains various construction materials. Location is on a narrow and busy part of West Chestnut Street not zoned for a business.

    This business has a "sandwich board" sign chained to the utility pole in front of the store. Does it have a special permit? It was reported for a similar infringement on pedestrians with an oversized banner compromising walkers' safety.

This was addressed last year and the company just parked all the vans on the lawn behind the house. Please send code officer out to handle again.
