NHDES Be Well Informed  - An Interactive Private Well Treatment App


This interactive app is designed to help people with a lab report containing water quality results from their private well to determine appropriate water treatment technology to remove one or more common groundwater contaminante found in NH.


Welcome to the Pelham New Hampshire Planning Department website.  Inside you will find information for the Planning Department, the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Adjustment, Conservation Commission, building application permits and forms, and Pelham's zoning ordinance and development regulations.  This site serves as a reference for a very active town Planning Department, and while every effort is made to keep it current, you should always refer directly to the Planning Department office if you have any questions.

Attention: Because the Planning/Building Office closes promptly at 4:00 pm no building permits will be issued after 3:45 pm due to the processing time. We apologize for any inconvenience resulting from this process. Thank you!
