Why are fees charged for a building permit?

Permit fees are based on the value of work being done, and are collected to cover the cost of application, the review, and the inspections. A building inspector is available to you should you have any questions concerning your project. Records of your project are maintained to show that code requirements were met, and you will have the personal satisfaction of a job done right.

Find a copy of the building inspection and permit fees on the Planning Applications, Fees & Permits webpage.
