Sheds: If I want to erect a shed, does it require a permit?

All sheds require Zoning permits. Some may require building permits. The difference is whether the shed is pre-built or built on site. Most pre-built sheds do not require building permits unless placed on a new concrete slab at which point then a building permit is required for the concrete slab. The Borough does require plans as to the  hold down building anchors of how is the shed secure to ground. Most of the time it's done with a screw type anchor, the kind they use in RV parks. Some restrictions mandated by the Codes will be applied.
