In most situations, your interior renovation or basement development will only require a Building Permit. If your proposed design does not meet the Land Use Bylaw requirements, you will also require a development approval (Development Permit).
Other Safety Codes Permits may be required such as Electrical or Plumbing Permits, depending on the scope of work.
Note: Basements may not be developed for the purpose of creating additional dwelling units and shall not include a kitchen, containing but not limited to a stove, fridge, upper cupboards & sink (other than a bar sink). If you wish to add a kitchen in your basement, see our Secondary Suite page.
