Development & Building Permits
Permits must be obtained prior to starting any development or building.
Building Permits in Mountain View County are issued in accordance with the Alberta Safety Code Act to ensure that new construction meets provincial safety codes. You may apply for a Building Permit once you have a Development Permit. Many people submit both applications at the same time however your Building Permit will not be issued until the Development Permit has been approved.
Building Permits are required to ensure your construction meets provincial safety codes. Your insurance may not cover a claim for an accident if you do not have a Building Permit in place.
- In accordance with the Safety Codes Act Permit Regulations 16 (1), work is to commence within 90 days of a permit issuance and is not to be abandoned for more than 120 days or the permit will expire. If the building permit expires, you must reapply for a new permit.
