The type of permit(s) required will depend on the nature of the work to be undertaken. Types of permits include building, plumbing, sprinkler, demolition, fireplace and chimney permits.
How to Apply for a Permit
Applying for a permit from the CVRD requires filling out a permit application, paying a processing fee and providing information detailing the proposed work. Your project may require additional planning approvals such as a development permit, variance, etc which could affect the timing of your project. Check with the Planning & Development staff prior to your building permit application to advise you on the exact needs of your application.
Permit Fees & Charges
An application for a building or other permit must be accompanied by the appropriate processing fee. The building permit fee is based on a percentage of the value of construction, including material and labour. Depending on the project, additional inspection fees may also apply. This fee is non-refundable and shall be credited against the permit fee once the permit is issued.
