Processing a building permit application typically takes between 10 to 30 business days, depending on the size and class of the project:
- 10 Business Days - Residential permit applications
- 15 Business Days - Part 9 Buildings, Multi-Family Residential, Commercial and Industrial buildings less than 600 m2 and not over 3 storeys
- 20 Business Days - Part 3 Buildings, Residential, Commercial, and Industrial buildings over 600m2 and/or more than 3 storeys
- 30 Business Days - Post Disaster Buildings
The above timelines are for complete applications. A complete application meets zoning requirements, Building Code, applicable law, and the submitted documents provide all required information.
The Guelph/Eramosa Township Building Department is prepared to provide reasonable assistance to the applicant, but will not assist in the laying out of work or acting in the capacity of an engineering or architectural consultant.
