Welcome to the Village of Britton

Welcome to Michigan’s Great Britton! We are a small farming community with friendly faces. We are always willing to lend a helping hand when needed and meet a new friend. We are proud to say that many of the current residents in our village are direct descendents of its founders.

Building permits are required for new constructions, remodeling and some repairs. Inspectors must be contacted before commencing work. If zoning approval is needed, you will get that from the Village prior to permit issuance.

Applications for permits are available in the Village of Britton Clerk's Office, or can be downloaded from this site. Call the Clerk for more information.

The Village of Britton has retained the Charter Township of Raisin to provide building, electrical, mechanical and plumbing inspections.
