Building, Sewage Disposal, Planning and By-Law Enforcement duties are handled mostly by the Building Department. The department consists of a:
- Chief Building Official/By-Law Enforcement Officer
- Junior Planner
- Building and Planning Assistant/Secretary
Contact the Building Department with your questions on demolition, construction, sewage disposal systems (septics), property zoning, the Official Plan, direction for subdivisions, home businesses, property standards and other related by-law information.
Please Note: We cannot stress enough how important it is to always check with our Building Officials prior to beginning any project. This is to make sure that you have met all requirements, have all the necessary approvals and are in compliance with all applicable regulations. Failure to do this can cause a delay of the processing of your application. If you have started your project, you could be required to remove it if it does not comply to the applicable requirements. It is therefore, in your best interest to consult with us while your project is in the planning stages.
Please call for an appointment to allow us to schedule the time required to review your application.
