The Municipal Building Deparment works in tandem with the Planning and Development Department to ensure a team approach when meeting to discuss your plans.
The Chief Building Official, Paul Gervais, is in the office Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm to assist you. It is recommended to schedule an appointment to ensure you can be seen when you visit.
In order to determine if you are eligible for a building permit, the property and your plans must adhere to the Municipal Official Plan, Comprehensive Zoning By-law and the Ontario Building Code. There are circumstances where the planned "use" of the property may conflict and would require a planning process. It is recommended that you consult with the Departments early to avoid any possible delays.
The Building pages under Townhall have more information regarding building and construction in East Ferris.
