A Development Permit is needed for most new construction, additions / alterations or changes of use. If you are planning changes such as constructing or renovating a building or changing the use of a building, you will need permits from the Planning and Development Department. Development permits deal with a development's impact on surrounding properties. Building permits deal with the structural stability of buildings and the health and safety of the building's occupants.
