All new construction within the municipality requires a Development Permit. Farm buildings which include barns, sheds and granaries do not require a Development Permit but must meet the setback requirements of the Zoning Bylaw. Farm dwellings do require a Development Permit.
The Development Permit allows the municipality to ensure that the new development meets all requirements for the zoning district in which the development will occur. You can download a Development Permit Application or contact the RM office. Please ensure all questions are answered on page 3 to ensure we have the correct information for recommendation. Applications must be received 2 weeks prior to our regularly scheduled council meeting to ensure it is placed on the agenda.
Please ensure that a Development Permit approval is issued before any construction begins.
