Permits and licenses are required for almost all businesses in Wellesley, even those operating for just one day. Requirements vary based on the type of business. While the town makes every effort to minimize processing times, some permits and licenses may require additional approval by the Fire Department, Police Department, Health Department, Department of Public Works, Building Inspector and other officials.
Planning, research, and frequent communication with the town will help avoid delays. For questions, contact Select Board Support Services Manager Cathryn Meagher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-431-1019 ext. 2219.
