Sheds and Garages

Sheds and Garages


A building permit is required to build shed or garage over 108 sf.

A development permit is also required if the size of building is over 215 sf.

Depending on the scope of the build, if adding electricity or gas, subtrade permits would be required.

No shed or garage shall be located on or over any utility right-of-way or easement or any drainage right-of-way or easement.

Step 1: Apply

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. 

Step 2: Approval

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

In the event a variance is required, timelines may extend up to 25 days.

Step 4: Construction

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

Locating utility lines prior to disturbing the ground is the owner's responsibility.

Step 4: Inspections

The conditions issued with your permits will outline what inspections are required.
