Property Owner Programs
Assistance with Filing Vacant Space
Employing CoStart the Chelmsford Business Development Director (CBDD) maintains a database of available space for lease. This database is published on this website. If you have more accurate data or want a specific listing included, we encourage you to submit it to the CBDD.
Permitting & Approvals
In most cases a new or existing business will only need a building permit if internal modifications are being made. However, in some cases, a change of use and exterior site modifications, may require zoning permits. The CBDD can identify specific zoning permits and procedures that may be necessary.
Real Estate Development / Land Development
In cases where a property owner is interested in exploring expansions to an existing building or redevelopment / re-use, the CBDD can discuss opportunities provided via the Rt .129 Mixed Use Zoning overlay including flexible zoning and expedited and streamlined permitting.
