Updates to Building Permit Fees

Note that the date and time of the Public Meeting have been rescheduled. The meeting will no longer be held on March 8th but will instead be held on March 15th. 

The Council of the Corporation of the Town of Deep River is proposing amending the costs of the building permit fees following a review of the current permit fees and the costs associated with providing the service to enforce the Ontario Building Code Act with regard to the issuance of building permits through Section 7 of the OBCA. The effect will be to increase the existing fee structure.

The Council will consider this matter on March 15th, 2023, at 6:00 pm at its regular meeting.

Anyone wishing to provide comments should write to the Clerk at townmail@deepriver.ca before March 15th, 2023, at 12:00 pm. An opportunity for verbal comments will be provided during the meeting on March 15th, 2023.
