Building Permit

A building permit is required if you wish to repair, alter, add to, construct, move, demolish or change the use of any building in the Township. If you are not sure if a building permit is required, check with the Building Department prior to starting. It is the responsibility of the owner and the builder to obtain all the required forms and permits. Please consult the office well in advance for advice on your building permit. Submission of all required documents with the application will speed up the issuing of the Building Permit.

Note: If you move or demolish a building, please contact the Tax Department to apply for an application for an adjustment of property taxes.

The Consent Process

A land severance is the authorized separation of a piece of land to form two new adjoining properties. This is commonly known as a consent. It is required if you want to sell, mortgage, charge or enter into any agreement for (at least 21 years) a portion of your land. If the two parts are split already, by a road or railway for example, consent is not needed.

The Minor Variance Process

The following provides the general process for Minor Variance applications, however, each application is different and therefore further information may be required prior to acceptance When applying for a Minor Variance please note that the application form outlines the information that is required under the Planning Act.
