Building and Developing

Most developments for constructing new or additions to a building, as well as some renovations require permits. The permit process helps enforce the requirements of The Municipalities Act , the Town's Zoning Bylaw, as well as other applicable laws and standards. It ensures compliance during construction, the structural safety of the completed building, as well as the protection of property values.

Getting Your Project Started

In order to help you get your development or construction project started and ensure you are obtaining all the required permits and documentation, view Steps to be Followed .

Building and Developing

Building and Development Permit applicants are encouraged to contact the Engineering, Planning and Development Department prior to formal application submission in order to clarify issues related to the processing of their application(s).

Development Permits

A development permit is required for most types of development in the Town of Kindersley. The permit ensures compliance with the Zoning Bylaw and approves the appearance, location, size and use of a building in any particular lot. Certain buildings and land uses are only allowed in certain areas of the Town in order to create comfortable residential environments, as well as prosperous business settings.

Building Permits

A building permit grants you legal permission to start construction with the knowledge that the submitted drawings comply with appropriate governmental regulations. In addition, the building permit provides the means to enforce the requirements of the National Building Code of Canada 2010 , the Town of Kindersley Building Bylaw 01-12 , as well as other laws and applicable standards to ensure compliance during construction as well as the safety of the building. A building permit shall not be issued unless a development permit, when required, has been granted first.

A building permit is required for the construction of a new building, an addition, or alteration of any building or structure, including but not limited to:

  • Building and building additions (i.e. new washroom, kitchen, bedroom, etc.)
