Building Permits

Certain construction projects in the City of Dieppe require building permits before they start. Based on City of Dieppe regulations, projects that require a building permit before construction starts are:

  • construction work
  • restoration/renovation work
  • expansion work
  • building additions
  • change of building use
  • moving a building
  • construction relocation
  • demolition
  • backfill or excavation work
  • new electrical entrance or modifications to existing system
  • patio construction
  • sign installation
  • fence construction
  • installation of a pool that can contain more than 60.96 centimetres (24 inches) of water
  • new plumbing system or modifications to existing system

Preferably, you should contact the Planning and Development Department before applying for a building permit in order to obtain all necessary information for the permit. You must then visit City Hall in order for your permit to be issued.

If your work proceeds without the required permit, a fine may be issued and an inspector may issue a stop-work order until a permit is obtained.
