If you wish to construct, alter, repair or demolish a building or structure within one of the three electoral areas (excluding Denman and Hornby Islands) of the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD), you may require a permit.

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. Download the permit application package for details on required documents to support your application.

CVRD Planning & Development staff should be consulted early in your project planning to advise you on the exact needs of your application.
