Several different permits are required to have a legal secondary suite. A Development Permit is needed before a Building Permit can be applied for.
Before applying for a Development Permit, your single family house must have the proper land use designation.
To apply for a Development Permit:
- Step One: Prepare the items on the applicable Development Permit complete application requirement list.
- Step Two: Book an appointment time online
- Step Three: Submit the application at the Municipal Building 3rd floor counter for a development permit review.
- Step Four: If approved apply for a Building Permit.
