Please be advised that we are experiencing a high volume of applications.  The current wait time to process a building permit application is now a minimum of 12 weeks for initial review.  Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.  Additional documents may be required after the plan review.

All Applications, Form 1, Engineer Schedules, Form 2 and Engineered Field Reviews must be in original form.  Photocopies and digital signatures will not be accepted.  When paying fees, we only accept cash, cheque or money order for payment.

If you are attempting to build more than one structure, i.e- detached garage, auxillary building, etc., each structure requires it's own application, application fee and two sets of plans to be submitted.

An original, sealed, site survey created by a registered professional must be submitted with your Application for all new dwellings, accessory buildings and additions.  The survey should show the proposed structure, property boundaries, grades, elevations and easements.  Without this, your application may be delayed.

When using more than one engineer, your Certified Registered Professional (CRP) must submit a Schedule A and initial all other engineer's original Schedule B's and C-B's at the bottom right-hand corner.

Building Permit Applications will only be accepted when the property owner wishing to start construction is the registered owner on title of the property.

For all commercial construction and cannabis production facilities, please contact BC Hydro for power availability prior to submitting a building permit application.

Effective January 2018 Update to Letters of Assurance - Information Bulletin click here

Effective August 2017 - Building Permit Applications will not be accepted prior to subdivision plans and documentation registered with Land Titles.  SLRD Planning and Building Staff require zoning and building plan checks to be completed prior to issuing the building permit.  Delays in this process are experienced when documentation cannot be verified due to the fact that the subdivision plans, and other required documents, are not registered with Land Titles.

2016 Effective R-Value of Installed Insulation for All Buildings of Residential Occupancy chart has been created to assist builders/contractors to ensure they meet the new energy efficiency requirements of section 9.36 BCBC.
