|Home Renovation or Construction|
Planning to renovate your home or build a new structure on your property?
There are certain permits, applications and by-laws to consider before you start a construction project. Building permits regulate the type of construction allowed in our community and ensure that building standards are met. The purpose of a building permit is to protect the homeowner as well as the community by making sure that any structural change is safe, legal, and sound. The Ontario Building Code includes regulations and standards related to building permits, building inspections and all other tasks involved with construction projects in the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen.
