Important Information about booking a site visit:

Due to Provincial changes staff have limited time to perform general site visits for the public. The priority will be those site visits associated with a permit or planning application. Therefore, a site visit request can take up to 2 months to complete. This will depend on the time of year and/or number of requests. Also, site visits will be limited to less than one hour so please include a site plan and/or specific details related to the request.

Weather Notice for Property Inspections 

Please be advised that weather may impact the timing for site visits and for the review of permit applications. Depending on snow/ice coverage, some inspections may be put on hold and kept in the queue until the spring. Staff will communicate with you via email once you have submitted a site visit request and/or a permit application. 

Site visits can provide you with valuable information to help you plan your project or make an important decision about buying a piece of property. Staff will address your questions and provide you with a report, map and/or photos of the site and will also inform you about any permit and setback requirements.

If you would like staff to attend your property to answer specific questions, survey the flood plain, delineate a small wetland or discuss the development potential you can request a site visit. Please ensure you fill out the form completely to ensure your questions and concerns are addressed.


When submitting your site visit request you must pay the associated fee. This fee will be deduced from your permit fee if you apply for a permit within the same calendar year as your site visit.

PLEASE NOTE: If you apply for your permit within the same calendar year as your site visit, the fee you paid for the site visit will be applied against the applicable permit application fee.
