Building Permits ensure that all buildings comply with the safety, health, building and zoning requirements of the FVRD's Building Bylaw and the Province of British Columbia's Building Code.

A Building Permit must be obtained before starting activities such as:

  • New construction
  • Alterations
  • Reconstruction
  • Demolition
  • Removal, relocation or change of occupancy of any building or structure including excavation or other work related to construction.
Before undertaking any work, please contact the Building Department. They will guide you through the permit process and advise which forms and inspections will be required.
