Deposits are to be submitted with Building Permit application.

Upon completion of the project you must notify the Building Services 519-837-5615 that the project is complete. Staff will direct an Public Works employee to examine the curb, sidewalk and boulevard to determine if any damage has occurred as a result of the construction. If there is any damage, the amount required to repair the damage will be subtracted from your deposit. The balance less administration fees will be refunded to you.

  • Building Administration Fee – $50.00

If access to your property is through a municipal park, permission from Public Works is necessary. Please call 519-837-5628.
