A basement development is the addition of rooms, bathrooms, and living spaces to an unfinished basement. Building and subtrade permits are required.
If your basement development is to create a secondary suite, please refer to the information for secondary suites.
Complete a Residential Alteration Application. This package allows you to submit one application when applying for all the required permits. There is no requirement to apply for all at one time, however to minimize wait time, we do suggest applying for all permits at once.
Detailed fee's are identified in the application package.
For quick reference; an estimated fee of $358.00 can be expected when developing a basement.
Once a complete application is received, all permits will be issued within 2- 5 business days.
You may begin construction once you have received all required permits.
