Building and Demolition Permits
If you are constructing, renovating, or relocating a house, garage, accessory building, or deck, you will need a Building Permit. Also, demolition of structures will require a Permit.
Before a Permit can be issued, the Building Inspector will require information about your project such as plans/drawings and materials.
Permits and information can be obtained from the Building Inspector, Tyrone Mogenson at (306) 728-0217.
Please be advised Building Permits may take up to 10 days to be approved.
A Building Permit is required prior to construction of the following:
- new building construction;
- structural change;
- building demolition;
- building relocation;
- change of occupancy or use;
- swimming pools;
- installing "bay", "bow" or "box" windows in new or existing openings;
