Single Family Dwelling

Permits

A lot grading, development, building and all subtrade (electrical, plumbing and gas) permits are required to construct a single family dwelling.

Please note: If you are developing a secondary suite a separate set of building and sub trade permits are required.

Step 1: Apply

Complete a Residential Permit 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.

Step 2: Approval

Once a complete application is received, all permits will be issued within 2- 5 business days.

If a variance is required, timelines may extend up to 25 days.

Step 3: Construction

You may begin construction once you have received all required permits. Below is contact information you may need for ground work and utilities.

Step 4: Inspections

All offered inspections are listed on the conditions issued with the permit.

Please see our Inspection Process page for further information on the inspection process for Single Family Dwellings.
