I want to add onto my house how do I find out about required building setbacks and other requirements?

You are encouraged to consult with the Building Inspector, the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Planning Board Administrator as may be appropriate in your particular case. The following excerpt is provided for informational purposes.

The height of any structure in all districts shall not exceed 35 feet or three stories (Boxford Town Code Ch. 196-23 Height regulations.)

The front setback of any structure shall be no less than 50 feet (except as noted in the Boxford Town Code Ch. 196-24(E)).

The side and rear setbacks of any structure shall be no less than 25 feet from the side or rear lot line (Boxford Town Code Ch. 196-24( F))
