Building Permit: Application
A Building Permit is required for most renovation and construction projects, including new buildings greater than 107 sq. Ft., additions, significant renovations, elevated sundecks, and so on. For removal of any structure, a Demolition Permit is required. Permit applications and corresponding plans undergo a technical review to ensure that projects comply with the Ontario Building Code and maintain the health, welfare and safety of the public. A series of inspections and approvals are undertaken during the life of a Permit to ensure work is completed in a satisfactory manner.

Heritage Permit Applications are reviewed and approved by Heritage Planning Staff and the Cobourg Heritage Committee (and subsequently Council) for more extensive alterations. Applications are reviewed with the consideration of the Council-approved heritage district guidelines and designating by-laws of individual properties.
