Building Permit Application In-Take

Effective May 19, 2020 ALL Construction projects will be deemed essential therefore the Building Department will be issuing Permits and doing inspections while maintaining safe workplace procedures during the Declared Emergency.

Our offices will remain closed to the public therefore the Building Department has enacted the following procedures during the duration of this Emergency.

  1. We will accept all Building Permit Applications and supporting documents electronically/by email. We have the capability of printing documents up to 36 inches in width.

NOTE: If you must submit paper documents, which we strongly discourage, you can drop them off in the drop off box outside the Municipal Office and from there it will be isolated for 5 days before our staff will handle it.

  1. Applications will be reviewed and if incomplete, we will contact you to identify the required material.
  1. Inspections will be conducted on all projects so long as “Physical Distancing” is maintained. Personal Safety will be at the discretion of the attending Inspector and if they feel their personal health or safety is at risk, they will leave the site until such time as they are satisfied that it is safe to complete the inspection..

It is of utmost importance that we protect the health and safety of our employee’s as well as the residents of our community.
