A lot grading, development, building and all subtrade (electrical, plumbing and gas) permits are required to construct multi family dwellings.
Please note: Every dwelling unit will require a separate set of building and sub trade permits. If the development spans over multiple lots, separate development and lot grading permits may be 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 the contact information you may need for groundwork and utilities.
Each site is required to have an approved Fire Safety Plan posted on-site during construction.
Step 4: Inspections
Please see below for how to make your inspection requests.
All required inspections are listed on the conditions issued with the permit.
