Building Permit Applications

A building permit is a license which grants legal permission to start construction of a project. It means that the Township of Wellington North has approved plans for any new structure, addition or renovation. Approved plans must comply with the Ontario Building Code, local zoning by-laws, and other applicable laws and regulations.  Building permits regulate types of construction allowed in the community and ensure that building standards, zoning by-law requirements and fire and structural standards are met.
