Code Enforcement

The offices of Code Enforcement, Animal Control and the Fire Marshal's Office will be closed to the public on Friday May 14, 2021 as part of the move of those offices to their new headquarters at 27 Ponquogue Avenue. Beginning Monday May 17, 2021 all services previously available at Town Hall and Jackson Avenue for those offices will be available only at 27 Ponquogue Avenue. 

Thank you for your patience as we relocate these services and departments.

Code Enforcement in the Town of Southampton involves many sections of the town code. The code is viewable online.

Violation Investigations

We investigate violations such as:

  • Property maintenance issues
  • Litter and debris
  • Overcrowded houses
  • Parking complaints
  • Noise complaints
  • Rental law permit violations
  • Peddler permit investigations
  • Taxi permit investigations
  • Building without a permit

Code Enforcement officials are sensitive to needs of the residents and investigate all complaints in an expeditious manner. If you report a complaint that we do not investigate, we will direct you to the proper department to resolve the situation.

Online Complaints

In an effort to become more efficient in our work, early in 2008, we added an online link to permit emailing of complaints directly to Code Enforcement. This has met with tremendous success and we have addressed many issues for the residents in this manner. Report a violation online.


The department works seven days a week, primarily during the normal business hours. During the summer time, extended hours are scheduled to provide for investigation of weekend code violations that are reported.
