Maple Ridge, BC: The City of Maple Ridge is making it easier for residents to apply for a building permit. The Online Building Permit Application Guide is an interactive portal that assists citizens with preparing their application. It also includes an instructional video on how to use the tool and better understand the submission process.
The in-depth guide provides specific property information, such as zoning and servicing details, as well as required forms and plans. It’s currently tailored for five project types:
- Single Detached Dwelling
- Detached Garden Suite
- Secondary Suite
The City is already looking to add more options in the near future. “We are very excited to be offering this smart resource to our community,” said Christine Carter, General Manager Planning and Development Services. “It’s designed to not only generate all documents that are required to submit an application, but also flag potential site features that may require additional consideration.” Users can save or print their results for convenient access any time. Citizens with multiple projects also have the option to create an account to store their guides. For more information, visit: mapleridge.ca/2543
